Ivan Garcia takes first win at Movistar in Gran Piemonte


Ivan Garcia Cortina took his first win for Movistar in Gran Piemonte after outsprinting Matej Mohoric and Alexis Vuillermoz.

“It’s my first victory after two years with the team and I feel so happy,” Cortina said.

“It was not so good for me sometimes, and I kept fighting and I finally got the victory. I actually hoped to win today. After the last races, I had the legs. With the climb 30km to go, it could break the group, and Matteo did a really good job. In the sprint, I was quite far back in the corner, and I knew the group was not so big, and I could pass the people and take the victory. It was not a lot of tactic in the sprint, just legs.”

The race was the final warmup ahead of Saturday’s Il Lombardia, the fifth and final monument of the 2022 season.
