Kazakh Alexey Lutsenko (Astana-Premier Tech) won the Coppa Agostoni on Monday, a level 1.1 Italian one-day race in the same region as the Tour of Lombardy. After a race of 180 kilometers, with start and finish in Lissone, he took the sprint in the sprint with two surprising for Matteo Trentin.

One of the six Belgian participants opted for the flight ahead: Floris De Tier was part of a breakaway of seven, but all of its riders were caught before the start of the last race hour. In the slopes zone, the Spanish Movistar Team took full control over leader Alejandro Valverde. They thinned out the pack considerably.
Alpecin-Fenix made the race explode on the final slope with Ben Tulett, and Ben Hermans was one of the few riders who had an answer to that. But when Trentin and Lutsenko then sped away from the leading group, the Belgian riders and teams were no longer with them. Louis Vervaeke and Xandro Meurisse doubled up in the pursuit of sprinter Kristian Sbaragli, but they couldn’t close the gap between the two leaders.
Sprint with two
Trentin and Lutsenko ran into a pedestrian crossing the road in the last kilometers, but they kept ahead until the line, where Lutsenko surprisingly beat the intrinsically faster Italian. Alessandro Covi, team mate of Trentin, was the fastest in the sprint in the chasing group for third place. The Belgians in the group missed a top ten ranking.
