The Critérium du Dauphiné is eight days long and held in late May into early June, as an important marker in the run-up to the Tour de France, with many of its general classification winners going on to wear yellow in Paris.

Ineos Grenadiers (also under the moniker Team Sky), have won the race seven times out of the last 11 editions, with Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas and Richie Porte all taking GC victory for the British team. Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) has won the event twice in the last five years, though, with Daniel Martínez (then EF Pro Cycling) triumphing in 2020. 

Richie Porte won't be defending the title he won in 2021, with this year's edition again featuring two summit finishes. Another big moment for the overall contenders is the individual time trial on stage four where the first real baring of who's on form before the Tour de France will be shown.

Jumbo-Visma are taking a strong team to the Critérium du Dauphiné, with
Primož Roglič, Wout Van Aert and Jonas Vingegaard all scheduled to start the race, in what is likely the team's Tour line up.

Other big names that are pencilled in are Chris Froome (Israel-Premier Tech), Brandon McNulty (UAE Team Emirates) and Wilco Kelderman (Bora-Hansgrohe), Pello Bilbao (Bahrain-Victorious), Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers) and Ineos' British duo Tao Geoghegan Hart and Ethan Hayter.
