Carlos Rodriguez leads INEOS Grenadiers' GC charge at Critérium du Dauphiné 2024

The traditional pre-Tour de France warmup, the Critérium du Dauphiné is often the place where tactics are fine-tuned and leadership within teams becomes clearer. Leading INEOS Grenadiers at the 2024 edition, will be Carlos Rodriguez.

The 23-year-old Spaniard was a star at the 2023 Tour de France, winning a stage before finishing fifth in the general classification, and is again expected to once again be the INEOS Grenadiers big hope for a potential podium later this summer, despite the expected presence of the likes of Tom Pidcock and Geraint Thomas in the INEOS Grenadiers Tour de France lineup.

At the Criterium du Dauphine however, Rodriguez will be the sole leader, and the Spaniard will get support from the likes of time-trial specialists Jonathan Castroviejo and Joshua Tarling, climbing talents of Laurens De Plus and Omar Fraile plus the all-round capabilities of former world champion Michal Kwiatkowski and Ben Turner.

If Rodriguez has hopes of securing the Maillot Jaune at the Criterium du Dauphine however, he will have to fight off some strong competition from the likes of Primoz Roglic (BORA - hansgrohe), Remco Evenepoel (Soudal - Quick-Step), Matteo Jorgenson and Sepp Kuss (Team Visma | Lease a Bike), plus Juan Ayuso (UAE Team Emirates) and Tao Geoghegan Hart (Lidl-Trek) among others.

INEOS Grenadiers for 2024 Criterium du Dauphine:

Carlos Rodriguez
Omar Fraile
Michal Kwiatkowski
Joshua Tarling
Ben Turner
Jonathan Castroviejo
Laurens De Plus
