Primoz Roglic, Jai Hindley & Aleksandr Vlasov confirmed for strong BORA - hansgrohe lineup at Critérium du Dauphiné

Preparations for the Tour de France are stepping up all over the peloton and for BORA - hansgrohe, they head to the 2024 Critérium du Dauphiné with an incredibly strong team, headlined by a trio of potential general classification challengers, Primoz Roglic, Jai Hindley and Aleksandr Vlasov.

For the first time since crashing out whilst leading the Itzulia Basque Country earlier this year, Primoz Roglic returns to competitive racing and leads the BORA - hansgrohe team for the traditional Tour de France precursor. If the experienced Slovenian isn't yet back to his race-winning best however, BORA have brought themselves multiple general classification contenders for the week-long stage race.

In former Giro d'Italia winner Jai Hindley and the recent Tour de Romandie runner-up Aleksandr Vlasov, Roglic either has considerable strength in his mountain support, or as mentioned, a plan-B/plan-C that can step up should Roglic still be off the pace after a lengthy layoff. With the likes of riders such as Bob Jungels, Marco Haller, Matteo Sobrero and Nico Denz completing the lineup, it's arguably the strongest team heading into this year's edition of the Dauphine.

Elsewhere though, there is significant strength in the competition also. Fellow potential Maillot Jaune contenders at the upcoming Tour de France such as Remco Evenepoel, Juan Ayuso, Carlos Rodriguez, Sepp Kuss and Matteo Jorgenson among others test their legs ahead of the challenges to come. Notably though, Roglic's former Team Visma | Lease a Bike teammate Jonas Vingegaard, will not be present at the Criterium du Dauphine, as he is still attempting to recover from his injuries in the same, aforementioned crash that took out Roglic at the Itzulia Basque Country earlier in the year.
