Eurosport will have live coverage of the 2018 Critérium du Dauphiné, beginning on June 3


The build up to the Tour de France begins in earnest at the start of June with the Critérium du Dauphiné giving the climbers a chance to test their legs before battling for the maillot jaune the following month.

This year’s edition of the Dauphiné  is certainly not one for the faint hearted, beginning with four back-to-back summit finishes packed into the second half of the race.

Before then the riders face an opening prologue in Valence which is followed by two lumpy days on stages one and two. There will then be a flat 35km team time trial on stage three which will act as a dress rehearsal for the third stage of the Tour de France.

From there it’s into the mountains with a really tough end to the week that should see the likes of Vincenzo Nibali, Geraint Thomas, Romain Bardet, and Adam Yates fighting it out for the overall victory.

As usual, each stage will be shown live on Eurosport 2, with a couple of daily highlights shows each evening to recap on the day’s action.
