“I have been feeling good until now and I hope to build on my form through this week,” said Boasson Hagen.
“There are some stages that could suit me at the Dauphine and I hope to be part of the final on those days.
“Everyone starts to come to their best level here so I think we will have a good and hard race,” he said.
The African team will look to repeat the success they’ve had at the eight day tour, which takes place in France.
Boasson Hagen won the sprinters jersey last year, as well as stage four, while Steve Cummings took the stage honours on stage eight.
Although Cummings will not take part this year, Boasson Hagen will line up alongside Serge Pauwels, Scott Thwaites, Youcef Reguigui, Natnael Berhane, Jay Thomson, Adrien Niyonshuti and Ben O’Connor.
“I am looking forward to the Dauphine again this year,” said Boasson Hagen.
“I have done well at this race in the past and last year went well for our team in general.
“This year we start over though and it is a new race all together.”
The tour runs from June 4 to 11 and will feature four undulating stages, one time trial and three climbing stages.
