Critérium du Dauphiné records

Five riders did win the Dauphiné three times: Chris Froome (gbr), Nello Lauredi (fra), Luis Ocaña (spa), Charly Mottet (fra) and five times Tour de France winner Bernard Hinault (fra).

The fastest time up Mont Ventoux was recorded in the 2004 Dauphiné. In the mountain time trial, Iban Mayo took just 55 minutes and 51 seconds to go from valley to summit, that’s an incredible average speed of 23.2 kph. Unfortunately, we know now that Mayo was doping during this period rendering his achievement irrelevant.
