The Critérium du Dauphiné is the race that provides confirmation that Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes is the leading cycling region. Each year, on our lands, the race brings together the elite riders of the international pack to do battle and tackle the legendary difficulties of our mountain ranges, with an eye on preparing for the major event in world cycling: the Tour de France.
With its 74th edition, the Critérium du Dauphiné is a genuine institution that bears witness to the excellence of cycling in our region. Being a partner of this event means highlighting our athletes, our landscapes and also our history. It also means promoting the veritable learning experience that cycling involves. I love this sport above all because it conveys superb values that are particularly dear to me: commitment, perseverance and surpassing oneself.
This year once again, the route promises a classic contest, with, in particular, a time-trial in the heart of the Forez area, hilly terrain providing good opportunities for punchers and two consecutive Alpine stages to finish the race in the finest way for mountain lovers.
I hope that this edition will provide us with the opportunity to cheer on our local champions who are the pride of our region, like Julian Alaphilippe and Romain Bardet, and I hope you all enjoy the 74th edition!
Laurent Wauquiez – President of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Regional Council
