Saturday could, Jakob Fuglsang to add another distinguished chapter to its dropped, since he was the first dane won the Italian cycling Lombardy Around.
The 35-year-old Astana captain won, hence his second monument, which describes the cycling's five largest endagsløb, after he last year won the Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
the Race's final developed into a duel against George Bennett (Jumbo-Visma), who attacked on the last climb, the San Fermo della Battaglia. Fuglsang had no problems following the new zealander, and with about six kilometers to the target attacks himself.
Absolutely irresistible should it prove, as the distance to the Bennett quickly came over 20 seconds.
the Victory came after a dramatic race in which the storfavoritten Remco Evenepoel drove out over a bridge on the descent of the Muro Di Sorma.
The 20-year-old Deceuninck-QuickStep-rider fell several metres down a ravine, and he was treated on the spot, before his consciousness was taken to hospital.
Evenepoel and Deceuninck-QuickStep had until then created the course and the iconic rise of Madonna di Ghisallo had decimated the field tremendously.
Jacob Fuglsang, kept to the Evenepoels rear wheel, but conducted the even Astana-the team forward on the Muro Di Sormano, so the leading group was reduced to just seven men.
Evenepoel fell from on the descent, and on the penultimate climb, Civiglio, got a acceleration made short work of the three Trek-Segafredo-riders, Vincenzo Nibali, Giulio dick tracy and Bauke Mollema.
The glitzy Astana-the day was rounded off with a third place to Alexandr Vlasov, who on the last 50 kilometers sacrificed himself completely for his Danish captain.
With the victory comes Jakob Fuglsang up on the side of Rolf Sørensen, who in his career also won two monuments, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and the tour of Flanders Around the clock.
the Victory is Fuglsangs number 26 as a professional.
