The Tour de France is, for cycling, something akin to a season finale that occurs in the middle of the season. Teams want to use the best tech possible, but they also try and avoid using anything brand new, preferring to trial potential new products in the warm up races leading up to La Grand Boucle. One such warm up is the Critérium du Dauphiné, a one week stage race in central France.
