Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain Merida) claimed victory in the Coppa Bernocchi, beating Guillaume Boivin (Israel Cycling Academy) and Sacha Modolo (UAE Team Emirates) into second and third, respectively, in the bunch sprint in Legnano.

“Finally arrived. I didn’t win for some time and this success is like a liberation. I thank all the team and especially Niccolò Bonifazio who helped me a lot in the final part of the race”, said Colbrelli.

“I decide to launch the sprint with 250 meters to go, maybe it was early, but I was fine and behind me my direct rivals were a little stretched. I feel pretty good and this victory is also the result of the high-altitude training camp. I’m ready for the world challenge”.

“If you just look at him in his face,” said his teammate Bonifazio, “you understand that Sonny is in really good shape. Today we all worked to help him and my job was to drive him in the last kilometer. It went well”.
