An­tag­o­nis­tic Moscon wins Agostoni

Procycling - - DEBRIEF -

On the eve of the Coppa Agostoni, be­fore Sky’s Gianni Moscon’s five-week ban for lash­ing out at a rider ended, he told Gazzetta dello Sport he wanted to win to “shut ev­ery­one up”. The Tour in­ci­dent was the lat­est en­try on the Ital­ian’s rap sheet, in­clud­ing racist be­hav­iour. “They’ve kept throw­ing sh*t at me but in my head, I’ve gone back to how I was as an am­a­teur. When there was a hill, I’d at­tack and go away alone.” Moscon did al­most that at Agostoni. He at­tacked with 60km to go and beat Rein Taaramäe in a two-up sprint, but it’s un­likely such wins will de­flect from his boor­ish be­hav­iour.
