Critérium du Dauphiné

men|Start: 5 June|Finish: 12 June

Team DSM coach Pim Ligthart: “WorldTour stage racing continues for us at the Critérium du Dauphiné which as usual takes place on a very hard course without a real flat stage. We have some stages that could end in reduced sprints, days that look good for the attackers, big days in the mountains and an individual time trial. We go to the race with a young and very motivated group, with the goal of chasing day results. This means we will ride aggressively throughout the week and try to take any opportunity that presents itself to us.”
