LYON, France (AP) -- British rider Chris Froome geared up for the Tour de France by winning the first stage of the Criterium du Dauphine on Sunday.

Froome won the eight-stage race last year. He completed the 10.4-kilometer time trial around Lyon in 13 minutes, 13 seconds. Spaniard Alberto Contador, a two-time Tour de France champion, finished second, eight seconds behind Froome. Bob Jungels took third, nine seconds back, and Andrew Talansky placed fourth, 11 seconds off the pace.

The second stage on Monday is a 156-kilometer trek from Tarare to Col du Beal.
