Critérium du DauphinéSunday, June 8 - The 2014 route for the Critérium du Dauphiné is a tough one. During the 8 days, sprinters, puncheurs, time trialists and mountain goats all get a chance to show themselves and test their form against their rivals. Stage 1 is a 10,4 kilometre ITT through the streets of Lyon. (Slideshow route/profile)

The 66th edition of the Critérium du Dauphiné kicks into gear on June 8 with a 10.4 kilometre individual time trial through the streets of Lyon. Riders will power through the new cyclist/pedestrian tunnel of Le Tube instead of going over the Croix Rousse hill, as they did in stage 14 of the 2013 Tour de France. Le Tube is 1.8 kilometres long.

After the tunnel riders head for the Montée de l’Observance, a 4th category climb, 800 metres long and a gradient of 5.5%. The finish is in the Confluence neighborhood after a long straight of 2.7 kilometres.

The first riders starts at 11:45 (CET) and the arrival of the last one is expected around 14:45.
