Critérium du Dauphiné gallery. Inside the stage briefing with Sean Hardy

Ever wanted to know how a briefing in Team KATUSHA ALPECIN for the stage works? Sport Director Claudio Cozzi meticulously prepares the profile of the parcours. This means: exact evaluation of all climbs with specification of gradience and length as well as dangerous sections of the route with Google Streetview images. The weather and in particular the wind direction is displayed exactly according to the weather forecast. „Boss“ Dirk Demol comes next. Short debriefing to the day before, where ruthless mistakes (the day before one or the other rider missed to jump into the group after many attacks happened) are addressed before it goes to the team tactics of the upcoming stage. Photographer Sean Hardy captured the moments for you on day three at Critérium du Dauphiné.
