Trentin turns sea­son around

Procycling - - DEBRIEF -

In the wet on a tech­ni­cal Glas­gow city cir­cuit, luck was fi­nally on Mat­teo Trentin’s side as he turned an in­jury-marred sea­son around to win a maiden Euro­pean road ti­tle. The Ital­ian missed more than two months of rac­ing af­ter a crash at Paris-Roubaix left him with a frac­tured spine, hav­ing also bro­ken a rib pre-sea­son. Trentin and team-mate Da­vide Ci­mo­lai made the cru­cial 10-rider break that formed with 55km to go and con­tested the win, be­fore the pair avoided a crash in the clos­ing kilo­me­tres. Trentin then held off cy­clo-cross ri­vals Mathieu van der Poel and Wout Van Aert in the sprint.
