Nizzolo wins GP du canton d’Argovie

by CyclingTips

Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek – Segafredo) took the field sprint win at the Gran Prix du canton d’Argovie ahead of Andrea Pasqualon (Team Roth) and David Tanner (IAM Cycling).

“It was very fast from the start with 14 up the road,” Nizzolo said. “We took responsibility, and all the guys pulled. The team did a fantastic job for me today; I have to give them a big thanks.”

The 14-rider breakaway had a decent advantage but proved to be too big to survive, with organisation a problem. At one lap to go the gap was down to only 40 seconds and the sprint teams began to mass on the front.

After the peloton caught the break with 6km remaining, counter-attacks went off the front, which included Nizzolo.

“When the break was caught on the last lap, I went with the counter on the climb, but the bunch came back with five or six kilometers to go. When we were caught I moved up again, and I still had power left for the uphill sprint.”
