Critérium du Dauphiné - Race Overview

The Criterium du Dauphiné is a demanding eight day stage race that is often considered a final tune-up for the riders that will contend for the overall at the Tour de France next month. The mountainous route opens with a time trial ahead of seven road stages. 

“We’re going into the race with no pressure at all. We’re not here to chase results. It’s a good preparation race – a high level preparation race for the Tour de France. We have some of our key guys here that are doing the Tour de France. With that said, if we can get a stage result along the way, we’ll certainly be happy with that. “ – Sport Director Matt Wilson
