Following Egan Bernal's abandon of the Criterium du Dauphine before the start, an early crash during stage 4 forced Emanuel Buchmann (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Steven Kruijswijk (Jumbo-Visma) to also quit the race.

Bora-Hansgrohe also lost Gregor Muhlberger, who went down hard in the same crash on the descent of the Col de Plan Bois after just 29km of racing. Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) was also caught up in the crash but continued in the race.
