TDF. Tour de France – Wout Van Aert will soon join Vingegaard in Tignes

Jonas Vingegaard set down his bags this Tuesday in Tignes, in order to carry out a training block at altitude in preparation for the Tour de France (June 29 to July 21). And this should be joined on Sunday by Wout Van Aert. The Belgian comes out of 4 days of racing on the Tour of Norwaywhich he considered conclusive and hopes to align with the large loop. Training base camp Visma | Lease a Bike (who even bought chalets on site, editor’s note), Tignes is the ideal place to prepare at altitude (2100 meters) at this time of year. They will also be joined in the Alpine ski resort by their teammates (Sepp Kuss, Matteo Jorgenson, Steven Kruijswijk, Tiesj Benoot and Dylan Van Baarle, editor’s note) after the Critérium du Dauphiné (June 2 to 9).

Wout Van Aert returned to competition at the Tour of Norway

“The Tour? The decision will be made in two weeks”

For the moment, the two leaders of the Dutch team are not guaranteed to participate in the Tour de France. Sander Kleikerswho takes care of team communication, told our colleagues at HLN that “The decision will be made in two weeks, when we will have a better idea of ​​the physical condition of Wout and Jonas.”

After recent months truncated by injuries, Van Aert And Vingegaard would in fact still be far from their peak form. Since the two runners have not yet followed specific training and would be quite far from their ideal weight. The stars of the Visma | Lease a Bike currently have no races on their schedule over the coming weeks, even if it is more than likely that Van Aert participates in the time trial and the road race Belgian Championships (June 20 and 23).
