Roster: Critérium du Dauphiné4. June 2015, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
Tejay van Garderen headlines the BMC Racing Team's roster for the Critérium du Dauphiné in his final lead-up race to next month's Tour de France.
Van Garderen won a stage of the Volta a Catalunya earlier this year, finished runner-up at the Tour of Oman and was the third-place finisher at the 2010 Critérium du Dauphiné.
"I am excited to get back into racing, as I haven't pinned a number on my back since Liège-Bastogne-Liège (April 26)," van Garderen said. "I have trained well at altitude and have done some good course reconnaissance. Now the race fitness is the last part of the equation in order to be ready for my main goal in July. The Dauphiné is the perfect race for this."
Among those joining van Garderen on the BMC Racing Team's roster are Santos Tour Down Under winner and past world hour record holder Rohan Dennis and 2008 Olympic road race champion Samuel Sánchez, who won a stage of the Dauphiné in 2013.
The eight-day race begins Sunday.
