The 70th edition of the Critérium du Dauphiné will be held from Sunday the 3rd of June 2018 to Sunday the 10th of June. The race – dating back to 1947 – takes place in the Dauphiné region in southeastern France. Billed as one the last big showdowns before La Grande Boucle, the Critérium du Dauphiné often includes climbs or time trials from the Tour de France. Jakob Fuglsang is title holder.
The Dane climbed to both stage and overall victory on the ultimate day. He won the race thanks to a time bonus of 10 seconds, despite a strong chase by then leader Richie Porte on the closing climb to Plateau de Solaison. The Tasmanian finished the Dauphiné in second, Dan Martin in third.
