Lopez will learn never to attack after this...
Could have been an interesting finale, Lopez looked super strong.

Valverde had attacked 2-4(?) times so I think he'll be more cagy in Lombardia and that this ride will benefit him.

Pinot and Italy a true love story. Maybe somebody can clarify Valverde's strategy for today and that crashing uphill was entertaining.
Valverde's strategy was perfectly logical based on the fact that Valverde is Valverde and Milan Torino isn't a WT race

If this wasn't training for Saturday, then that jersey messed up with his head :D

Happy for Pinot, he deserved it. Lopez very strong also, but Lombardia is not 2x Superga, we'll see...

Not a fan of this move by Pinot, but he looks strong and probably would have won anyway.
So what exactly? Should have stopped?
Unbelievable...
No, but if your opponent crashes into your teammate (mistake of both) you don't have to attack directly as well. This forum would have gone nuts if Moscon made this move.

Anyhow, Pinot was the strongest today and a win in an Italian classic was coming for him. Chapeau.

Valverde was already dropped (thats why Lopez was looking back I guess), so Pinot was alone, so he didnt attack anyone

Pinot attacking was the direct consequence of Gaudu finishing his work.

Yeah, that explains why he didn't see Gaudu take the swing

btw about Gaudu, good to see him finally step up again.. it doesn't show in the result, but he was better than Bernal today for the first time since ages :razz:

(yes i know Bernal just came back from injury, but still)
What surprised me was that Egan was already much than better Moscon, despite only riding in his third race in more than two months.
