We are back to stage racing mode with Ronde de l’Isard. The race in the south of France has, historically, been one of our most successful rides as we have seized stage wins in the last three editions and in the 2018 one we took home the overall win with Stevie Williams. This time around, the Ronde de l’Isard presents a total of five stages, including a final all the way up Plateau de Beille. It will be a climbers’ race, which will enhance the chances of riders like Marco Frigo and Harrison Wood. However, the top speed of Corbin Strong and Sean Flynn will be key when contesting the opening stage that previews a bunch sprint finish.
Lineup Ronde de l’Isard: Harrison Wood, Marco Frigo, Milan Paulus, Wessel Krul, Sean Flynn and Corbin Strong.
Ioannis Tamouridis, Performance Manager and Academy DS for the race:
“We are ready for the challenge. We know from past years that we are good at Ronde de l’Isard and we want to keep that going. The variety of parcour in the stages opens up different scenarios, but we are confident that we can be contesting for the stage win on a daily basis and ride a good general classification with our climbers”
