Il Lombardia Latest on Cyclingnews Video1991 Giro di Lombardia / Tour of Lombardy
At only 20 years of age, the Belgian is the favourite for victory in Como, but his route to victory is not a straightforward one.
The race rolls out of Bergamo at Bergamo was one of the cities worst affected by the COVID pandemic, and in the dark days of late March, it seemed impossible to imagine that Largo Porta Nuova would play host to the start of a bike race in The gruppo is due to hit kilometre zero at The distance is a slightly reduced km this year, but all the familiar ascents from this iteration of Il Lombardia are on the course.
Quite a difference from the frigid conditions faced by winner Giovanni Gerbi and the eleven other finishers in the first edition of the Giro di Lombardia on November 12, The race is effectively taking place behind closed doors, with tifosi barred from lining the roads on the Madonna del Ghisallo and the Muro di Sormano, while there will be no big screens for spectators at the finish in Como and the podium will not be open to the public.
All eyes will be on Remco Evenepoel this afternoon. The Deceuninck-QuickStep man has a 1. Though that's hardly news: the Belgisch wonderkind 's default setting is confident.
It's perfect timing. For a six-hour race with a lot of climbing, I think you need to be in good shape and I think we did a perfect job.
The Tour de Pologne would ordinarily have struggled for attention last Saturday given the clash with Milan-San Remo and a Tour de l'Ain that doubled as a Tour de France dress rehearsal, but Evenepoel's outsized talent is such that he would demand our attention even if he were riding his turbo trainer.
He attacked alone with 51km to go on the toughest stage in Poland to solo to victory and effectively seal the overall title.
There have been lots of early accelerations, but no ruptures in the peloton as yet. Androni-Sidermec are especially active in trying to get a man or two up the road.
Max Schachmann has flown under the radar somewhat ahead of Il Lombardia, but the German champion was one of the outstanding performers before the coronavirus interrupted the season, winning Paris-Nice, and he rode very strongly indeed on his return to action at Strade Bianche, taking third.
He was quieter at the Tour de Pologne and though he has ridden Il Lombardia just once in his career 73rd in , he will surely be in the mix by the time we reach Lake Como later in the afternoon.
It's been a fast start to proceedings but the bunch is still together as it loops around Bergamo and circles back towards the first climb of the day, the Colle Gallo.
Vincenzo Nibali Trek-Segafredo is chasing a third victory at Il Lombardia after his triumphs in and Alfredo Binda has four wins and, of course, Fausto Coppi holds the record, with five Giro di Lombardia triumphs, including four-in-a-row from to The American was the main driver in the early break at Gran Piemonte on Wednesday and he seems keen on another big day out here.
Rosskopf isn't being granted much leeway, however, and it seems that the American's attack won't stick. It looks as though we finally have our early break.
The intensity has finally slackened in the peloton and the escapees are stretching out their advantage accordingly as they scale the Colle Gallo 6km at 6.
For all the polemics about its place on the calendar this year, it should be noted that a lack of respect for the Tour of Lombardy is not an entirely new phenomenon.
Ahead of a edition where Bernard Hinault, world champion Freddy Maertens, defending champion Fons De Wolf and Roger De Vlaeminck were among the high-profile absentees, the late Gianni Mura delivered a memorably cutting assessment of the depth of the peloton: "They call it, imbued with lyricism, the Race of the Falling Leaves.
And that's true - only this time it seems to me that a lot of falling leaves have numbers pinned on their backs. In any case, there's certainly no questioning the motivation of the men lining out at this year's race.
There has been a blistering pace thus far, with The escapees are approaching the summit of the Colle Gallo and their lead over the peloton is up to It's very interesting to note the presence of Petr Vakoc in this move.
The Czech is a key support rider for Mathieu van der Poel, but Alpecin-Fenix have decreed that he can best serve the cause by getting up the road early on.
At times, the opening three stages felt as though they could have been taking place on Zwift the poor souls caught in the hailstones on Thursday certainly wished they'd been racing on a virtual platform , but the race is not short on drama today.
Julian Alaphilippe is in the day's early break. Il Lombardia is descending the Colle Gallo and heading towards Felice Gimondi country, though the race will not pass through his home village of Sedrina, which is about 8km up the Val Brembana from Villa d'Alme.
Tomorrow marks the first anniversary of Felice Gimondi's death at the age of He won the Giro di Lombardia on two occasions, in and He gave the ceremonial start to the race in Bergamo in Ordinarily, one would ask whether it was possible for a year-old debutant to win Il Lombardia.
You can't say in advance that he'll win. At Il Lombardia, the pace has abated briefly in the peloton and the escapees have quickly tacked on another minute to their advantage, which now stands at He'll be back in the service of the Slovenian at the Tour de France, but Bennett has one more chance to ride for himself at Il Lombardia.
His best finish here was 10th in , but Bennett's sparkling form makes him an obvious contender for victory in Como. With a team like ours, stacked with talent, you've got to take your chances when you can, so I'm going all in for Il Lombardia.
I'm optimistic," Bennett said yesterday. Stephen Farrand has the full story here. The man who came closest to living with Bennett's winning move on Wednesday was one Gianni Moscon, who has been largely anonymous since his remarkable purple patch in late - save for for his battling 4th at the Yorkshire Worlds and, of course, for his disqualification from Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne for throwing his bike at Jens Debusschere.
That was Moscon's last race before the lockdown, and the Ineos rider has since stated that he will miss the Grand Tours in in order to focus on the Classics.
He placed third in Il Lombardia in , though it's unclear what his place will be in the hierarchy of an Ineos team that also includes Richard Carapaz, Eddie Dunbar and Ivan Sosa.
The escapees are on the false flat that leads into the Colle Brianza 4. After two hours of racing, incidentally, the average speed was The terrain becomes decidedly more rugged once the race heads towards the shores of Lake Como.
Vakoc and the break are on the upper slopes of the Colle Brianze with a buffer of just over 4 minutes on the peloton.
Deceuninck-QuickStep and Jumbo-Visma are the teams commanding affairs in the peloton, as befits the fact that they have the form men of the race in their ranks in Remco Evenepoel and George Bennett.
Remco Evenepoel's procession drew all the attention at the Tour de Pologne last week, but Jakob Fulgsang was the best of the rest in second place overall.
The Astana man went too hard too soon in the break at Strade Bianche and suffered accordingly, placing 5th, but the Dane is a real threat here.
He placed 4th in both and the rain-soaked edition, and he is joined by Mont Ventoux Denivele Challenge winner Aleksandr Vlasov in the line-up today. That pair will also be in action for Astana at the Giro d'Italia in October.
Into the final kilometres for the 11 escapees, whose advantage is gradually melting beneath the incessant afternoon sunshine. The gap is down to The race is now climbing steadily towards Valbrona before the quick drop down to Onno on the south-eastern branch of Lake Como immortalised in the opening lines of Alessandro Manzoni's I promessi sposi.
Soon afterwards, the race reaches the centrepiece of the Giro di Lombardia and the climb of Madonna del Ghisallo. Brandon McNulty is also in action after competing at the Tour de Pologne.
We caught up with the young American in Argentina in January to run the rule over his progress to this point. The race has reached Onno on the shore of Lake Como and there is an almost Pavlovian response from the peloton to the sight of those waters.
The speed ratchets up in the bunch and the break's lead has dropped to The race is 5km or so from the base of the Madonna del Ghisallo 8.
The Tour of Lombardy scaled the Ghisallo for the first time in and the ascent immediately became a fixture on a route that wound its way around the branches of Lake Como.
These days, the chapel incorporates a museum, which poignantly displays the crushed bike of the late Fabio Casartelli, the Como native killed when he crashed on the Col de Portet d'Aspet at the Tour.
My legs are pretty good in the last few weeks at Occitanie and the Tour de l'Ain, so I think I'll be there in the final. The break is beginning to fragment on the Madonna del Ghisallo, and Davide Gaburro Androni Giocattoli-Sidermec is alone at the head of the race, but the peloton is just 30 seconds behind them.
Astana and Deceuninck-QuickStep are setting the tempo on the lower slops of the Madonna del Ghiasallo. The Ghisallo-Sormano combination should see the peloton whittled down considerably.
Piccoli forces the pace and is trying to forge clear alone over the Ghisallo. Piccoli is in front with Rosskopf and Stork chasing him, but the Deceuninck-QuickStep-led bunch is picking off the remnants of the break and has closed to within 18 seconds of the leaders.
Rosskopf rids himself of Stork and sets off in lone pursuit of Piccoli. Devenyns sets the tempo in the peloton for Evenepoel. Piccoli and the chasing Rosskopf will struggle to hold off the bunch.
The gap to the bunch is just 13 seconds and they have 5km of climbing to the chapel at the summit of the Ghisallo.
Rosskopf is caught by the bunch. James Piccoli is the last man standing from the early break, but the Canadian surely won't last too long at this rate.
Meanwhile, many riders are being jettisoned off the back of the bunch by the QuickStep pace-making, most notably Fabio Aru.
This is very early indeed for a rider of his calibre to be distanced. Devenyns leads the bunch with Evenepoel on his wheel.
Fuglsang and an Astana delegation are lined up just behind Evenepoel. Vincenzo Nibali is also tucked in near the front of the bunch, which is about to catch Piccoli.
James Piccoli is caught by this reduced peloton of perhaps 50 riders. The break's adventure is over. Maximilian Schachmann taken down by car in Il Lombardia German finishes seventh but left with fractured collarbone as UCI launch investigation - updated.
