The Farnese Neri rider, who had finished third overall in the Tour of Oman this year already, edged out Jure Kocjan and Rinaldo Nocentini to reach the line first.

An uphill finish to the race, which began in southern Switzerland before crossing into the north of Italy, suited Visconti after an early breakaway had been reeled back in to the main bunch.

"It shows that the work done in Qatar and Oman is paying off", a delighted Visconti said.

"It gives me morale for the RCS races, which will be my first major objectives for the season."
