The Critérium International crams three stages into two days and offers a chance for every type of rider to excel.

It was formerly considered to be the French national championship, until foreigners were finally allowed to compete in 1979.

The race was successfully switched to Corsica in 2010 and this year will return to the Mediterranean island for the fourth straight year.

Chris Froome will lead the Team Sky challenge, while reigning champion Cadel Evans is back to defend his title.
