“It was a perfect day,” said Nibali. “I was still better than two years ago and I think you have seen it. In the last flat part my speed was over 50 km / h and so it was not easy to come and catch me. For me, it was number 50 win and I wanted to point out at the finish line. ”

Near the end Nibali joined the lead group of chasers behind race leader Thibaut Pinot (Fra) FDJ. He attacked and bridged to Pinot who was no match for the Italian and was caught by the chase group. Alaphilippe tried to reel in Nibali but ran out of pavement and took second with Moscon winning the bunch sprint.

Speaking of the race, Vincenzo said, “I understand that I should have invented something. On the hardest part of Civiglio I started with a dry attack. I made a difference and took Pinot. It was nice to see so many people on the streets… a really cool emotion. ”

“I got a great support from my team,” he added. “I had great physical condition from the end of the season, but everyone was looking to me as the favorite so it was not easy to win.”
