15/08/2020

Jakob Fuglsang (Astana Pro Team) has won the 114th Il Lombardia presented by UBI Banca, raced over a 231km route from Bergamo to Como.

The second finisher was George Bennett (Team Jumbo – Visma), and third was Aleksandr Vlasov (Astana Pro Team).

 

FINAL RESULT

1 – Jakob Fuglsang (Astana Pro Team) – 231km in 5:32’54”

2 – George Bennett (Team Jumbo – Visma) at 31″

3 – Aleksandr Vlasov (Astana Pro Team) at 51″

Speaking seconds after the race finish, the winner Jakob Fuglsang said: “It was a hot day and went full gas. I felt good but I knew that George [Bennett] was also in good shape, especially after his win at GranPiemonte on Wednesday. Luckily there was Vlasov who helped me a lot: he rode like a champion today. After the Civiglio I thought I was going to sprint with George [Bennett], then on San Fermo, I tried and when I saw that I was alone, I continued to push until the finish line.”  PH Credits: Dario Belingheri
