Eritrean rider Daniel Teklehaimanot is one of the top 5 climbers to Watch at the 2015 Tour de France as he proved to the world that he is the undisputed King of the Mountains and polka dot jersey winner at the Tour de France preparatory race Criterium du Dauphine. Tour de France countdown: 6 days to go.

By Cycling News,

WITH five summit finishes, the 2015 Tour de France is one of the most mountainous Grand Tours in recent years and the fight for the King of the Mountains competition is certain to be one of the most strongly contested battles in this year’s race. 

Daniel Teklehaimanot (MTN–Qhubeka) won the polka-dot jersey – his team’s first WorldTour jersey – at the recent Dauphiné and has the attributes to mount a challenge in what will be his and his team’s debut in the Tour de France. Without a true GC contender, MTN will be on the hunt for stage wins as well as spells in the green and polka-dot jerseys.
