Il Lombardia - Race Overview

Multiple 2014 Tour of Romandie stage winner Michael Albasini has finished sixth in ORICA-GreenEDGE's strongest performance at the Il Lombardia in Italy today.

The 33-year-old featured amongst a select group over the difficult final climb within the last five kilometres, battling for the top ten position behind Dan Martin (GRS) who escaped off the front with 500metres to ride for the victory.

“By far this is the best Lombardia the guys have raced since the beginning of the team,” sport director Matt White said after the race.

“Every team struggles to put eight riders in form into a race at this time of year but the four we had in the final had a super ride.
