Moser leaves ri­vals & poor form be­hind

Procycling - - Debrief -

When Moreno Moser won Strade Bianche in 2013 at the age of 22, with a Tour de Pologne win al­ready to his name, it seemed that a glit­ter­ing fu­ture lay ahead. Yet since that March day five years ago, he’d won only a sin­gle race - a stage of the Tour of Aus­tria in 2015. But he got 2018 off to a bet­ter start by win­ning the tough Tro­feo Laigueglia solo, from a late 17-rider se­lec­tion. Like Fabio Felline the year be­fore, Moser won the race rep­re­sent­ing the Ital­ian na­tional se­lec­tion rather than his trade team, As­tana. But af­ter years of medi­ocre form and in­jury trou­bles, Moser looks to have a new lease of life.
