Thunderclap this Saturday morning in Lavelanet. Sick, the leader of the 46th Ronde de l’isard, the Norwegian Jorgen Nordhagen, must withdraw.

Shock this morning in Lavelanet when Nicolas Loth, the historic speaker of the Ronde de l’isard, announced to the many supporters present that the leader of the event, the Norwegian Jorgen Nordhagen (Team Visma Lease a Bike Development), ill, is forced to abandonned. Leader of the general classification with 1’24” ahead of his runner-up, he seemed the big favorite to win the event on Sunday in Saint-Girons. He now leaves the field open to his ex-racing partners. At 12 p.m. this Saturday morning, it is the Dutchman Tijmen Graat (Team Visma Lease a bike Development) and the Belgian Jamo Winar (Lotto DSTNY Development Team) who will set off as virtual leaders. But the pursuers are not very far away. With the Col de la Croix des Morts (7.1km at 5.7% average), the Col de Marmare (4.8km at 3.5%) and, above all, the arrival at the top of the terrible Plateau de Beille ( 15.9km at 7.8%) the fight promises to be incredible. Without the yellow jersey, the cards are completely redistributed.
