“I didn’t have great legs today but wanted to try for the sprint. Going into the last 300m I had good position but one guy almost crashed in front of me and I had to brake” 

Daniel Holt (USA) – Devo Team Manager

A pretty straightforward race today. The Italian National Team had Elia Viviani here, and we knew they were going to work for him since the course was so flat. Let the break go early, keep them within a couple of minutes, then bring it back together for the sprint, and that is exactly what happened.
