Today the monument classics end with the “race of the falling leaves”, the Giro di Lombardia.
We were privileged to watch a real cycling spectacle with a battle amongst almost all the big names in the international peloton. With 35kms to go, double Tour de France winner Tadej Pogaçar attacked, and none of the other strongmen had a response to this attack.
Only the Italian Fausto Masnada was able to return to the wheel of the Slovenian rider on the descent of the last climb, but he was no rival for Pogaçar's in the final sprint.
Pogaçar thus ends the 2021 season, winning 2 monuments and the Tour de France, something that had not happened since 1972 with Eddy Merckx.
