2012 Criterium du Dauphiné

So today is the official presentation. Unlike this year Tour and P-N, nothing has leaked as I know. Hope for a great route, in contrast to the 2012 Tour, which just tickles the Alps. We also might get a clue about next year's Alps of the Tour.

Well, I've heard several rumours about stage finishes in Rumilly (with the Grand Colombier), Morzine and Chatel. Should be a nice course.

Joux Plane... bodes well for it being in the 100th Tour.

almost 60km of ITT... is it a little bit too much?

Stage 5 to Rumily is kind of ridiculous but it is ASO we are talking about now!

Look at the tdf route, it is good preparation for the race

Not a single 'vero' MTF but Joux-Plane it's like two of them.

L'Equipe mentions Morzine Avoriaz two times but I think it's a mistake.

what more did you want? Mont Ventoux, usually overcome on all fours? quite ordinary parcours.
