BARDIANI CSF FAIZANÈ: 268KM OF BREAKAWAY IN MILANO-SANREMO BY ALESSANDRO TONELLI. FOR HIM IT IS THE THIRD TIME IN A ROW.
There's no two without three. Alessandro Tonelli goes to the attack for the third consecutive time at the Milan-Sanremo. 268 km traveled in the lead, among the last to desist on the Cipressa just under 1 km from the summit. Fiorelli and Marengo the best of the team at the finish.
Alessandro Tonelli at the Milan-Sanremo has a fixed appointment: the breakaway. 268 km of breakaway in this edition, 265 the km of breakaway made in the 2020 edition, 260 in the 2019 edition always wind in face and with courage. Even today Alessandro Tonelli was among the last riders to give up, when the race was almost at the top of the Cipressa climb and the first breakway made up of 8 athletes was now reduced to 4 riders..
Behind him a good performance by Filippo Fiorelli and Umberto Marengo, good at staying in the group of the best for a long time. At the end of the Cipressa with the frenzied pace imposed by the Ineos team, the group breaks into two sections with about thirty units in command, among them Filippo Fiorelli. From behind, however, comes back the second larger group to play for the chances of a final sprint.
At the finish line the best of the team is Filippo Fiorelli 48th, with him also Umberto Marengo 51st, both 29 seconds behind the winner of the day Jasper Stuyven.
