How Jonas Vingegaard arrives at the Dauphiné: 7 stages, 2 GC victories, 57 days without racing and high altitude camp

The talented Danish cyclist, Jonas Vingegaard, has arrived at the Criterium du Dauphiné with an enviable winning streak in the 2023 season. With 17 days of racing under his belt, Vingegaard has claimed 7 stage wins and secured 2 overall classifications (Itzulia Basque Country and O Gran Camiño).

Vingegaard, a member of the Jumbo-Visma team, faces the Criterium du Dauphiné after a total of 57 days without competition, after winning Itzulia and taking time off. The Danish cyclist has taken advantage of this period to prepare himself properly, carrying out a high-altitude training camp that will undoubtedly come in handy for the Tour de France, his main objective.

Last year, in 2022, Vingegaard took second place in this same competition, finishing behind teammate Primoz Roglic. This result, coupled with his impressive performance in the current season, has raised high expectations for what Vingegaard can achieve at the Criterium du Dauphiné and, subsequently, the upcoming Tour de France.

The Danish rider has proven to be a versatile cyclist with a great ability to adapt to different types of terrain. His ability to stay strong in mountain stages, as well as his speed and endurance in time trials, make him a fearsome rider and a threat to his competitors.

The Jumbo-Visma team, known for its focus on performance and results, has strongly backed Vingegaard in his quest for glory at the Criterium du Dauphiné and the Tour de France. With a strong team and a well-planned strategy, Vingegaard has the support he needs to achieve his goals and challenge the world's best cyclists. Gone are the days when he had to compete for team leadership with Primoz Roglic.


The pressure on Vingegaard is evident, as his recent successes have put him in the international cycling spotlight. However, the Danish cyclist seems calm and focused, ready to face the challenges that await him at the Criterium du Dauphiné and, later, at the most prestigious race on the cycling calendar: the Tour de France.

The competition at the Criterium du Dauphiné promises to be intense and exciting, with a line-up of top cyclists competing for victory (Mikel Landa, Enric Mas, Daniel Martinez, Adam Yates Richard Carapaz, Jai Hindley...). Jonas Vingegaard is determined to make his mark in this prestigious race and to reaffirm his status as one of the best riders in the world.

In short, Jonas Vingegaard has arrived at the Criterium du Dauphiné with a brilliant cycling season behind him. With 7 stage wins and 2 overall classifications, the Danish rider is one of the most prominent names in cycling today. With careful preparation and the backing of his team, Vingegaard is a favorite.
