Bouhanni sprints to victory in Dauphine 2nd stage

VILLARS-LES-DOMBES, France (AP) -- Nacer Bouhanni of France outsprinted compatriot Samuel Dumoulin to claim the second stage of the Criterium du Dauphine on Monday for his biggest win so far this season, while Peter Kennaugh remained in the overall lead.

With less than a month to go before the Tour de France, it will be a huge confidence boost for Bouhanni, who has been struggling since he joined the Cofidis team during the offseason.

Team Sky's Kennaugh kept the leader's yellow jersey, two seconds ahead of Sacha Modolo, who ended the 173-kilometer (107.5 mile) stage from Le Bourget-du-Lac to Villars-les-Dombes in third place.
