IL LOMBARDIA: GIOVANNI VISCONTI IN TOP 20 AND BEST ITALIAN RIDER
A classy performance from a proud Giovanni Visconti that, despite the serie of races of the last races and his not perfect conditions, was the best italian rider at the end of an edition of Il Lombardia dominated by Bauke Mollema.
Our captain resisted till the bottom of the climb of Cittiglio, second last of the day, where the dutch rider launched his attack before reaching Como with an advantage of 16" on his chasers.
Visconti didn't give up and ended 2'08" behind Mollema with the team Neri Sottoli - Selle Italia - KTM as the best of the Professional teams at the finish.
Our european season ended up like this, with a good result at the end of a 2019 where the team has achieved some prestigious results hoping to get some more in the final stages of the Tour of Taihu Lake in China.
