To make it even more impressive, our Dane beat the new European Champion and pre-race favorite, Sonny Colbrelli. Plus, his last win before these two victories in Italy was back in 2018 at the Amstel Gold Race.
“It’s been a while. But it feels good. I could get used to that winning feeling,” said Valgren.
Three of our riders ended up ranking in the top ten for the race. Neilson Powless made a strong solo attack on the final lap and crossed the line in sixth while Ruben Guerreiro finished strong in tenth.
“It was special to race two days in a row like that with the same group of guys. When you’re on a team that is working together so well and having so much fun in the last few days, you hope you can keep that momentum going through the end of year,” said Powless.
The World Championships are right around the corner and we look forward to seeing what Valgren brings to the event. In the meantime, the team will say farewell to Tuscany and look forward to what other races this season has to offer.
“I dedicate this victory to the whole team. We rode fantastic. So thank you,” said Valgren.
