Critérium du Dauphiné 2024, June 2 - 9

Now that the Giro is over after a complete demolition by Pogacar, we can focus on the next battle. Critérium du Dauphiné. Besides Pogacar and Vingegaard, almost everyone that means anything in stage racing will be here. Roglic, Evenepoel, Ayuso, Kuss, Jorgenson, and many more. After the showing of Pogacar let’s hope we see a decent fight with proper climb times or we might be in for a TDF with a similar outcome as the Giro. And most importantly we’ll finely see if Evenepoel lost his baby fat, and is back at Vuelta ’22 weight.

Oh my god my body is so ready, I'm suffering from heavy Pog-Vingegaritis, I feel like I can't even remember what a GC battle looks like, this is exactly what my doctor has prescribed me:
That route, that line up, Remco and Roglic fanbases at each other throats, Landa looking beautiful, Ayuso trying to convince himself he won't have to pull at the Tour for Pog, David Gaudu disappointing the French already, I could go on and on...inject it all into my veins.
