And it sets up a tantalising 15km mass start on Sunday, with Laegreid just four points behind Thingnes Boe in the overall classification.
"I did not think I had a chance to take it, because I was third behind Johannes and Jacquelin," Laegreid said.
"I had sort of given up the pursuit globe but I was happily surprised when I can into the finish and heard that I was the winner."
Meanwhile, Marte Olsbu Roeiseland emerged victorious in the 10km pursuit.
