Cycling. Tour of Italy U23 – Jarno Widar the 6th stage in boss, the French placed

Five difficulties, a difficult summit finish at Fosse, and nearly 3000 meters of altitude difference concentrated in the last 100 km of the route… This 6th stage of the Tour of Italy U23 had everything of the queen stage of this 2024 edition, the famous “Tappone” as the Italians like to call them. Everything was decided on the slopes of the final ascent of Fosse (SantAnna d’Alfaedo) and its 8.9 km at an average of 8.8%, with a new success at the top for Jarno Widar (Lotto Dstny Development)! Put under pressure by his dolphin Mathys Rondel (Tudor U23) in the final, the wearer of the Pink jersey patiently waited in the Frenchman’s wheel before carrying out a devastating acceleration in the last hectometers, as during his victory on the 3rd stage on Tuesday. The young Belgian confirms his domination in the mountains and is getting closer to the coronation.

De Schuyteneer already winner the day before for Lotto Dstny

Widar solid leader, 3 French people in the top 10 overall

On the line, Widar ahead of the Spanish duo by one second Pablo Torres (UAE Team Emirates Gen Z) and Pau Marti (Israel Premier Tech Academy). Mathys Rondel he cracked a little in the last meters and finished 4th at 14 seconds. Also a good performance from Leo Bisiaux (Decathlon AG2R La Mondiale Développement), which came to take 6th place at 20″, just behind the Czech Pavel Novak (Team MBH Bank Colpack Ballan). In difficulty following a fall, 5th overall Wouter Toussaint (Wanty-ReUz-Technord) lost everything and fell out of the top 10.

Overall, two days before the deadline, Widar now has 52″ on Pablo Torres and 58″ on Mathys Rondelwho narrowly saves his place on the provisional podium since Pau Marti is tied with the Habs! Great operation for Leo Bisiauxwho moved up to 6th place (+2’10”), but also for his teammate and compatriot Killian Verschurenwhich enters the top 10 (+ 3’36”).
