Il Lombardia 2022, one day monument, October 8, farewell to Nibali and Valverde



One day classic for climbers. As always all the climbing talent is here.

Notable events/riders:
  • Pogacar is back to defend his victory from last year
  • Vingegaard will want to beat Pogacar again
  • MVDP is back after running into trouble with some kids in Australia (he decided he likes gravel now for some reason)
  • Enric Mas is fresh after his win against Pogacar in the Giro del'Emilia
  • strong group of others like Vlasov, Bilbao, Yates bothers (Simon crashed, only Adam to start), Cosnefroy, Bardet and Goudu, Pinot, ...
And last but not least:
  • Last race in his long career for the legend that is Valverde!
  • Last race in his long career for the legend that is Nibali! And since the race is in Italy expect a lot of tifosi and support for Nibali.
