Sku­jinš show­cases his sprint­ing skills

Procycling - - THE BIG INTERVIEW -

Of the six road vic­to­ries Toms Sku­jin has in his ca­reer, his win at Tre Valli Vare­sine was the first that he didn’t claim solo but rather won from a small group sprint. The Lat­vian’s three stage wins at the Tour of Cal­i­for­nia have all come as a re­sult of sur­viv­ing from the day’s main break­away. In Coppi e Bar­tali in 2017 he at­tacked solo on the fi­nal climb and sim­i­larly at Tro­feoAn­dratx this Jan­uary he at­tacked with 7km to go. But at the lumpy Ital­ian au­tumn Clas­sic, the 26-year-old showed he has sprint­ing abil­ity as well as punchy panache, to win from a group of seven.
