Modolo clinches Coppa Agostini
Colnago rider Sacha Modolo won the Coppa Agostini, the second instalment of the Tricotto Lombardo.
Modolo beat fellow Italians Simone Ponzi and Oscar Gatto in Lombardy, Italy. The race is one of three held around the region over consecutive days.
Modolo has found a rich vein of form in recent weeks and secured his sixth win of the season with a well-executed sprint which proved too much for Ponzi and Gatto in the group finish in Lissone.
Modolo was at the front end of the peloton when the race split on the Madonna del Ghisallo after just 60km, and remained part of the decisive 35-man group which formed in the final 80km.
Davide Torasantucci (D'Angelo & Antenucci – Nippo) and Daniel Oss (Liquigas-Cannondale) broke clear of the pack in the closing stages, but were unable to hold off the challenge of Modolo during the final sprint.
