Il Lom­bar­dia

Procycling - - GALLERY -

Thibaut Pinot shows the grit and e fort of at­tack­ing in the inal stages of a mon­u­ment as he breaks away alone in Il Lom­bar­dia, the last ma­jor Euro­pean race of 2018. The French­man's de­but mon­u­ment win was taken af­ter he faced down Vin­cenzo Nibali as they tack­led the Civiglio with 20km to go. Fol­low­ing his ninth at the Worlds, ifth at Emilia, sec­ond at Tre Valli Vare­sine and win at Mi­lan-Torino, Pinot must have re­gret­ted that the sea­son in­ished be­fore his pur­ple patch of form had run its full course.
