True to its commitments, LCL has been present on the Tour de France since 1981. LCL strengthens its presence throughout the year via internationally renowned cycling events:
- Critérium du Dauphiné
- Tour de France
- Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift
The Critérium du Dauphiné Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes is a legendary competition. Each year, in our region, it brings together the elite of the international peloton to do battle on our demanding roads. It is a major event in the cycling season and always a fine foretaste to the Tour de France.
Over the years, the Critérium du Dauphiné has become an institution and is also a symbol of our region’s excellence when it comes to cycling. Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes is a major sporting region and especially a historical home of cycling. From the roads of the Auvergne to the Alpine passes, the route of this new edition will put the spotlight on our landscapes and territories, which are the playgrounds of choice for many cycling enthusiasts.
The Region is therefore proud to be a partner of such a competition. Firstly, because it embodies all the beautiful values of cycling, which are so dear to me: perseverance, self-sacrifice, merit and commitment. Secondly, due to the fact that cycling races create an unforgettable festive atmosphere in our towns and villages: from the start to the finish, all our inhabitants can enjoy the magical atmosphere created as the cyclists ride by. This is how enthusiasm is born at the roadside, when spectators can be dazzled by the exploits of the greatest champions. This edition will also be an opportunity to watch our champions from the region who will be flying the flag of our local pride. From Julian Alaphilippe to Romain Bardet, there are many champions who come from our region, for which they are wonderful ambassadors.
I hope everyone has an excellent race
