The WorldTour season continues on Sunday 5 June with the Critérium du Dauphiné. The French stage race usually serves as a dress rehearsal for the Tour de France, which starts in Denmark at the beginning of July. In addition to the opening stage of the Dauphiné, a peloton will race over De Muur van Geraardsbergen in Belgium. In the leader’s jersey tells you where and when it can be seen!
TV and times stage 1 Critérium du Dauphiné 2022
With the start of the Dauphiné, the Tour jitters among cycling fans and certainly also among the riders will increase at a rapid pace. The first leg is immediately interesting, especially because it can go in different directions. On the way there are four climbs on the program. All four are not too heavy, but with a hard course the sprinters can just be thrown overboard. Should that happen, we will look to men like Wout van Aert and Ethan Hayter. If they drive at a leisurely pace on the slopes, then sprint bombs such as Dylan Groenewegen and Phil Bauhaus can prevail. Or does a refugee take the first yellow jersey?
Whatever it is, you’ll have to turn on a little earlier in the afternoon to follow it live. In France, the men’s final of the Roland Garros tennis tournament is mainly in the spotlight on Sunday, hence a one-time earlier finish for the Dauphiné. The riders will leave at 10.20 am for a journey of almost 192 kilometers. The arrival is expected around 2:48 pm. You can see it live from 13.35 pm at sporza on channel A† Eurosport
chooses tennis on its main channel, so they spend the first day of the Dauphiné Eurosport 2 (1.35 pm) and the Eurosport Player (1:05 p.m.).
TV and times Brussels Cycling Classic 2022
All Belgian one-day prices are currently coloring the calendar; Sunday it’s the turn of the Brussels Cycling Classic, a race that was an autumn race until this year. The race was often a sprinter’s ball, but since the organization took a different tack last year, the classic riders also see a lot of opportunity. The drivers have to brave the iconic Muur van Geraardsbergen twice, and shortly afterwards the Bosberg; the two slopes used to form the final of the Tour of Flanders. Last year Remco Evenepoel already tackled the heavier course to avoid a sprint, who will succeed this year?
The peloton will start the one-day race at 12.15 pm and finish between 5.10 pm and 5.40 pm. Have a look at the Dauphiné sporza† If so, you can leave the TV on. sporza goes on A (from 3 p.m.) right on with the Brussels Cycling Classic. You can also follow the course at

TV and times stage 2 Adriatica Ionica Race 2022
The second stage of the Adriatic Ionica Race will be held in Italy on Sunday. With Cristian Scaroni of the Italian selection in the leader’s jersey, the peloton awaits a difficult arrival on Monte Grappa. The final climb covers a distance of 28 kilometers. Although the average gradient of 4.8 percent is not too bad, the climb is very irregular. Will Scaroni hold up? Or will there be another rider in the leader’s jersey after day two? Unfortunately, the race is not broadcast on television. Well taken care of In the leader’s jersey a match report.
