Primus Roglic floors Adam Yates in Milan and Turin and is a big fan of …

This week it’s raining on the one-day Italian classics that make up one extended tour of last Saturday’s tour of Lombardy. With Milan-Torino, the penultimate race of those races was scheduled for Wednesday, and the Gran Piemonte remains on Thursday.

In Magenta – a city in northern Italy after which the color is named, there was a very nice field of participants at the start on Wednesday afternoon: Pogacar, Roglic, Alaphilippe, Almeida, Valverde, Adam Yates, Mollema, Woods, Martin and Vlasov, Quintana, Hershey, Lutsenko, Nepali … colored by the list of participants. Of all the Lombardy Tour favorites, only Evenpoel was absent. Our young compatriot chose the road reconnaissance.

Milan and Turin are traditionally defined in the Superga, a steep climb of 4.3 kilometers with an average 9 percent that must be overcome twice in a row in the final. Deceuninck – Quick-Step decided not to wait for the double hangman and pulled the peloton on the Po plain 45 kilometers into the levels. Only thirty passengers made it to the first group, including Pogacar, Roglic, Alaphilippe, Almeida, Valverde, Woods and Hirschi. Dries Devenyns drove completely empty to allow the first fan to start his first superga climb with a lead. It worked, but Adam Yates, Sivakov, Quintana, and Storer, among others, established the connection.

Just before the summit, our compatriot Maury Vancevenant accelerated. The 22-year-old Belgian from Deceuninck – Quick Step got a twenty-second bonus, but that bonus wasn’t enough given the quality on the chase group. In Suburga’s second and final ascent, Adam Yates snatched a Vincendent, just as captain Julian Alaphilippe had to relinquish the role up front. After that, all the favorite things fell out one by one. Only Primus Roglic was able to follow Adam Yates’ wheel in the last kilometers.

The two went to the last hectometer. Yates made another attempt to free Roglic, but the Vuelta winner once again proved himself the fastest. The Slovenian from Jumbo Visma also won the Giro del Emilia last weekend in a similar field and is the favorite in next Saturday’s Tour of Lombardy.
