Text size Aa Aa

COMO, Italy (Reuters) – Italian Vincenzo Nibali used his descending skills to claim an impressive victory in the Giro Di Lombardia “Monument” classic for the second time on Saturday. The Bahrain-Merida rider, who also won the race in 2015, dropped Frenchman Thibaut Pinot in the descent from the Civiglio hill and never looked back. He crossed the finish line 28 seconds ahead of France’s Julian Alaphilippe, according to provisional results. Another Italian, Gianni Moscon, took third place after the 247km ride from Bergamo. “Il Lombardia” is the last of five Monument (top) one-day classics in the season after Milan-San Remo, Paris-Roubaix, the Tour of Flanders and Liege-Bastogne-Liege.
