Nizzolo sprints to win at Gran Piemonte

by CyclingTips

Italian champion Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek-Segafredo) sprinted to the win at the Giro del Piemonte, racing for his national team, ahead of Fernando Gaviria (Etixx-QuickStep) and Daniele Bennati (Tinkoff).

“It’s a great victory because it comes at the end of a race contested at a very high tempo. I’m also happy because I felt great on the climbs,” Nizzolo said. “I couldn’t ask for better timing, winning a race ahead of the World Championships. Now I know that I can go to Doha with great motivation.”

The action began early as a large breakaway with some dangerous riders formed, including Ben Swift (Sky) Philippe Gilbert (BMC) and Filippo Pozzato (Wilier-Southeast). This forced the teams that missed-out, such as the Italian national team, to chase. The high pace kept the break close and eventually Stéphane Rossetto (Cofidis) went out solo as the rest returned to the peloton.

BMC led the peloton for much of the way, bringing Rossetto’s four minute gap down, before Etixx-QuickStep finished him off, only two kilometres from the finish.

The pace of the hard chasing efforts shrunk the peloton to only around 40 riders and Nizzolo opened his sprint at 200 metres from the line to take the win.

    That longest lap business is funny to watch. I bet that guy that was pushed off by the later winner will have something to say about it though, and it can’t be repeated here!
