Gorka Izagirre solos to victory in Gran Trittico Lombardo

Astana dominated the Gran Trittico Lombardo on drenched roads with a first and second on the day as Gorka Izagirre took the victory after a solitary attack.

Izagirre established a gap of 36 seconds, and he maintained much of that into the final climb. Alex Aranburu won the field sprint, ahead of Greg Van Avermaet (CCC), Michał Kwiatkowski (Team Ineos), and Vincenzo Nibali (Trek-Segafredo).

“It was a wet day, but it was a beautiful one, too. It was a really hard race and this final circuit is very difficult. We had a small group get away and I managed to get a gap and then I was able to stay away alone,” said Izagirre.

“We’re all very happy because we worked well. [Fabio] Felline and [Matteo] Boaro did a good job. [Alexey] Lutsenko fell early in the race but it went well for us. We’re going well and we’re all happy with the result.”
