After a covid-19 delay a reduced Critérium du Dauphiné took place in August over 5 stages, rather than the regular 8 stages. With the Tour de France just 3 weeks away it was a final proving ground for the main contenders. Daniel Martinez (EF Pro Cycling) took victory by 29s from Thibaut Pinot (Groupama FDJ) with Guillaume Martin (Cofidis) completing the podium, a further 12s back. It had looked like a Primoz Roglic (Jumbo Visma) whitewash but a crash on stage 4 saw the Slovenian not take the start on the final day, saving him for the larger objective. The Jumbo Visma team did manage to win 3 of the 5 stages on offer, with Wout Van Aert taking stage 1, Roglic stage 2 and Sepp Kuss the final stage in to Megeve. The other stage winners were Davide Formolo (UAE) on stage 3 and Lennard Kamna (Bora Hansgrohe) on stage 4.
