Final KM: Trofeo Alfredo Binda, Milan-Sanremo

Two daring solo attacks full of fierce joy. What a weekend of racing!!

Milan-Sanremo, 294km

The first monument of 2018 ended in a ballsy, beautiful, solo victory for Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida). Caleb Ewan (Mitchelton-Scott) took the bunch sprint for second with Arnaud Demare (Groupama-FDJ) rounding out the podium.  Watch the video and enjoy cheering him home again… What a racer, what a win.

Trofeo Alfredo Binda: Taino to Cittiglio, 131.3km

Second at Strade Bianche, Canyon SRAM’s Katarzyna Niewiadoma claimed the top step with a glorious gutsy solo victory after a fierce attack on the final climb. Holding 8 secs at the crest with 10km to go, she descended like a demon to cross the finish line 23secs before the chase group. Chantal Blaak (Boels-Domans) pipped Marianne Vos (WaowDeals) for second.
