On Sunday, Simon Yates finished off the perfect three weeks of racing and was crowned champion of the Vuelta a España. An important step for the 26-year-old, who has, this year, lost Paris Nice on the last stage, by just four seconds, and then completely cracked on the penultimate mountain stage of the Giro d’Italia, a race he dominated from start, almost to finish. So how, exactly, did he do it?
Talking of generational shifts, we saw the end of a glittering career at the Madrid Challenge by La Vuelta. Giorgia Bronzini gave a lesson to us all on how to go out in style by winning her final race as a professional rider. She formed part of a 16 woman group that stayed clear to the finish - she timed her sprint perfectly to come around Sarah Roy. Bronzini, who won back to back world championships in 2010 and 11, will now hang up her wheels to become sports director at the newly formed Trek Factory Racing.
The Coppa Agostoni down in the Lombardy region kicked off a busy period of one-day races down in Italy. The race was dominated by Gianni Moscon, in his first race back after being thrown off the Tour de France and his subsequent 5-week ban from competition. He easily outsprinted Rein Taaramae at the end of the 200km race.
The following day at the Coppa Bernocchi, we had a bunch sprint - a sterling lead out from Bahrain Merida saw Colbrelli perfectly delivered to the 200m to go mark, and when he kicked, nobody could even get close. Manuele Belletti and Paolo Simion rounded out an all Italian podium - quite apt for the 100th edition of the race.
