It’s that time of the year when the professional peloton starts looking toward the Tour de France which also means the dress rehearsal, more formally known as the Criterium du Dauphine, is now upon us. The World Tour Criterium du Dauphine gets underway on Sunday, and will end after 8 stages on 11 June. The Criterium du Dauphine has been an event which our African Team has performed well at in recent years with Daniel Teklehaimanot having won the King of the Mountains jersey 2 years running. Edvald Boasson Hagen won the sprinters jersey last year, as well as stage 4 while Steve Cummings took the stage.
