The Critérium du Dauphiné gets underway this weekend and is one of the traditional warm up races for the Tour de France.

Many of the general classification favourites for the Tour will be on the start line, ready for one final opportunity to test the legs before they head to Bilbao for the Grand Départ on 1 July. After only recently winning the Giro d’Italia, reigning champion Primož Roglič will sit out the week-long stage race in south east France.
