Add your content here! GP Nobili came to a close with a bunch kick in Stresa. ORICA-GreenEDGE's Leigh Howard was the first of the 50 strong group to open the sprint and the fifth rider across the finish line. Simon Ponzi (Blacks In Oil) Took top honors ahead of Christian Delle Stelle (Team Idea) and Fran Windy (Movistar).

“Leigh started his sprint early at about 300 metres. He was leading until about 50 metres – which was when he first got passed. He ended up in fifth place. It’s a bit disappointing, but it was still a good hit out for the guys going to Catalunya next week.” - Sport Director Matt White.
