The Irish Independent columnist won the event after successfully defending his 45 second lead in the three-day event by finishing in the peloton on a third and final stage won by Italy’s Adriano Malori.

The victory is Roche's first in a stage race and the Route du Sud is a race his father won in 1985 and that his cousin Dan Martin won in 2008.

The Tinkoff-Saxo rider said: "It was a magnificent feeling crossing the finish line taking my very first GC win after three days of very hard racing. This was a confident-booster before taking on Tour de France in a couple of weeks, so obviously, I'm looking forward to it."
