Giovanni Visconti climbs to victory in Giro dell’Emilia

Giovanni Visconti

Giovanni Visconti (Bahrain Merida) won the Giro dell’Emilia at the top of the steep 2km San Luca climb.

The Italian attacked with 16 kilometres remaining and held off a late chase from the peloton to claim the victory as teammate Vincenzo Nibali took the second place. Rigoberto Uran (Cannondale Drapac) completed the podium.

On the last descent, Esteban Chaves lost control of his bike and crashed. Visconti managed to keep a gap of 20 seconds with the rest and crossed the finish line on his own.
