The Italian Autumn Classics (Il Lombardia)
« on: September 11, 2017, 09:17 »
The Italian Autumn Classics

At the far end of the season, Italy takes center stage as the season’s final dramas play out on the southern side of the Alps. It's time for the Italian Autumn Classics again.

The 112-year old Il Lombardia is the centerpiece of the fall calendar — the last of the five monuments and the only one not held in spring. Lombardia is the star, but it is supported by an undercard rich in Italian cycling history and local flavor that is relatively undiluted by the sport’s global push. During the weeks before Lombardia, northern Italy hosts another number of classics ranging from UCI 1.HC to UCI 1.2 status - among them Milano-Torino,  which debuted in 1876, 16 years before La Doyenne, which makes it the oldest race on the professional calendar.

13.09.      1.1      #med   Coppa Agostoni - Giro delle Brianze
14.09.      1.1      #flat   Coppa Bernocchi
16.09.      1.1      #flat   Memorial Marco Pantani

05.10.      1.HC      #mountain   Milano-Torino
07.10      WT      #mountain   Giro di Lombardia

The schedule of races is more or less the same as last year, starting with the two Coppas and with Lombardia as the highlight in the end, which should attract good starting fields to races like the Giro dell'Emilia again.

The "Trittico di Autumno" (consisting of Milano-Torino, Piemonte and Lombardia, brought back by RCS two years ago) is down to two though this year, as the Giro del Piemonte was basically held in June already, as the Italian National Championship. From the GP Industria & Commercio di Prato, initially part of the calendar last year, there's no sign of return unfortunately.

Two newly introduced two-day race Giro della Toscana will remain in the calendar though, basically forming a series of three one day races together with the Coppa Sabatini the day after again, including an overall competition over those three days, called "Memorial Martini".

Unfortunately the Trittico Lombardo is still separated by nearly three weeks now, with Agostoni and Bernocchi right at the start, and Tre Valli Varesine two weeks after, but apart from us no one regarded it as an overall competition anymore anyway, I guess ;).

According to the early schedules, we should get live coverage for Coppa Agostoni, Coppa Bernocchi, Giro dell'Emilia, GP Beghelli, Tre Valli Varesine, Milano-Torino and Il Lombardia - which is pretty amazing, I must say :cool

    71° Coppa Ugo Agostoni - GP Banca Popolare di Milano

    Wednesday, September 13th

    The season of Italian Autumn Classics starts on Wednesday with the first race of the Trittico Lombardo, the Coppa Ugo Agostoni - Giro delle Brianze - GP Banca Popolare di Milano. In recent years, climbers like Rebellin or Sella, as well as alrounders like Pozzato and Colbrelli, but also more or less pure sprinters like Modolo or Bonifazio were victorious at the finish in Lissone.

    1st 2nd 3rd
    2016      *it   COLBRELLI Sonny      *it   ULISSI Diego      *it   GAVAZZI Francesco
    2015      *it   REBELLIN Davide      *it   NIBALI Vincenzo      *it   BONIFAZIO Niccolo
    2014      *it   BONIFAZIO Niccolo      *si   BOLE Grega      *it   PONZI Simone
    2013      *it   POZZATO Filippo      *it   PONZI Simone      *it   ZAMPARELLA Marco
    2012      *it   SELLA Emanuele      *it   BALIANI Fortunato      *it   DI LUCA Danilo

    Two years ago the organizers hardened up the parcours though to attract Nibali and give him the opportunity to prepare for the Richmond World Championships after his exclusion from the Vuelta - and they sticked to that approach. So the riders still have to tackle four laps on the hilly circuit around Lissolo instead of one in previous editions:


    That circuit is not super hard though, last year quite a lot of sprinter managed to close the gap on the flat run-in to the finish, so it should be an open race, which favors attacking riders, but leaves the sprinter teams some hope as well.

    The provisional start list looks good:
    • #teamit NAZIONALE ITALIANA
    • #bora BORA - HANSGROHE
    • #bahrain BAHRAIN - MERIDA
    • #teamch NATIONAL TEAM SUISSE
    • #fortuneo FORTUNEO - OSCARO
    • #wilier WILIER TRIESTINA - SELLE ITALIA
    • #bardiani BARDIANI CSF
    • #fantini NIPPO - VINI FANTINI
    • #androni ANDRONI - SIDERMEC - BOTTECCHIA
    • #gazprom GAZPROM - RUSVELO

    • #rally RALLY CYCLING
    • #tirol TIROL CYCLING TEAM
    • #mgkvis SANGEMINI - MG. K VIS
    • #amore AMORE & VITA - SELLE SMP

    Seems like Finetto will be on double duties for #delko and #teamit :P. What's up with #cajarural Celano though?

    The only non-Italian winner in the past 14 years was Linus Gerdemann in 2008 - and looking at that list of participants, that's unlikely to change. But #fortuneo Romain Hardy is in good shape though and recently won the Tour du Doubs and Albasini looked good in Montreal, so who knows.

    The race will be broadcasted live for the first time (as far as I can remember) on Rai Sport, PMG Sport and Eurosport (among others) on from ~13:45 cest

    He missed Limousin due to a fever, so it's possible he's still recovering from that.

    There could be other explanations of course. :shh

    Strange one that.

    I thought they would have a decent commercial deal set up and utilise Sky and Sky Italia to keep them going.

     Looking at this week's races via Rai's tv grid, Giro della Toscana, Coppa Sabatini and GP Beghelli have highlights only, this week.
    I mention the fact because first reports suggested that GP Beghelli would be shown live. In fact it has just 40 minutes of highlights on Sunday evening.

    I can confirm that the Giro dell'Emilia does have live coverage: 15-30 to 17-15cet.

    I expect the following week's races all to have live coverage, as usual.

    Memorial Martini: Giro della Toscana & Coppa Sabatini

    Tueday 26th to Thursday 28th

    After the debut last year, the Memorial Alfredo Martini returns in a similar fashion, consisting of the two day 2.1 race Giro della Toscana and the 1.1 race Coppa Sabatini the day after:

    The parcours of the Giro della Toscana is way harder this time though, especially with the (~9k at 5% average) mountain top finish on day 2.

    Giro della Toscana - Stage 1: Pontedera - Pontedera (181,8 km / 49,9 km + 2x 54,4 km + 3x 7,7 km)



    Giro della Toscana - Stage 2: Lajatico - Volterra (165,1 km)



    Coppa Sabatini: Peccioli - Peccioli (195,9 km / 57,6 km + 3x 21,7 km + 6x 12,2 km)



    Additional to the normal classification by time in the Giro della Toscana, there's a combined points classification for both races. 1 to 50 points are awarded to the Top 20 each of the three days, and the rider with the most points takes the overall.



    Participating teams:

    A full start list doesn't seem to be available yet, but among those riders confirmed to participate are big names like #astana Vincenzo Nibali, #bahrain Sonny Colbrelli, #bahrain Enrico Gasparotto, #fantini Damiano Cunego, #dimension Mark Cavendish and #dimension Steve Cummings.

    As MV mentioned above, highlights on tv will be broadcasted in the evening each day.

    #dimension Cummings won the first stage ahead of Bernal, Backaert & Nibali. Colbrelli came first in the sprint from the peloton half a minute behind or so.



    Highlights will be broadcasted online on PMG Sport at 17:00

     I may watch it later, as Rai aren't showing these highlights until after midnight.
    I just went browsing French Eurosport 2, to see what coverage they had live of Vendee on Sunday and what do you know?
    Their schedule does in fact show the GP Beghelli live at 15-00cet for 90 minutes. (Vendee live to follow)
    Also showing on the Eurosport player.
    So, I would assume PMG Sport will have the race live.

    Only Rai missing out then.

    unfortunately they seem to have missed most of the action today as the decisive move came pretty early.

    those 50 minutes of the 4 leaders holding back the peloton are now available online though: http://www.pmgsport.it/video/diretta-streaming-ciclismo-cup-giro-della-toscana-live/

    as PCS doesn't seem to have the full results yet...here they are, by the way

    so Cavendish, Celano, Atapuma, Meintjes, Cunego, Bongiorno and so on all finished way down the order. Strong climbers who finished in the first group and may have a chance to still challenge Bernal and Nibali for the overall tomorrow are Guillaume Martin, Ciccone, Durasek and Sepulveda... but most likely it will be between those two only

    @lasterkateburua did proper profiles for the race by the way...




    ... and also an interactive one for tomorrow



    so the final climb is not particularly steep. Cummings sounded skeptical in the post-race interview today, but maybe he does stand a small chance as well

    that was a pretty good showing by #wanty Martin, he just destroyed Visconti from the front. Strong performance by #cajarural Ferrari as well, who still finished 4th after being in the breakaway all day



    50 minutes of highlights are available on PMG Sport's website

    Here are the Memorial Martini standing after 2 of 3 race days:

    30      #gazprom   ARSLANOV Ildar            1                  1

    so it's still pretty open, theoretically even riders with 0 points so far could still win

    ...which (in numbers) is less than expected to be honest. But almost all teams are sending their big players :cool

    Spoiler (hover to show)

    + #sky Team Sky for Coppa Sabatini today, with a good team including Viviani, Rosa, Tao and Kennaugh. And #uae UAE adds Ulissi to their roster for the race. Sbaragli at #dimension Dimension Data is another strong addition :cool

    Pasqualon doubles up for #wanty Wanty!: Very nice!





    only the Top 5 are published so far, but those 50 points should be enough for Pasqualon to also secure the win of the Memorial Martini overall rankings :cool

    Cobrelli not a happy bunny, as Pasqualon's back wheel appeared to clip him, as the Wanty man slightly altered his line in beginning his sprint.
    However, it was just a racing incident. So tough cheese, Sonny.
    No helicopter shots, this year for the first time in a while.
    I assume tv has to cough up quite a lot a money, with all these races now in a line on the calendar.

    I figured out why Eurosport in the UK aren't showing any of these races, until Milano-Torino.
    The rights were with the Bike Channel and then they went bankrupt.

    PMG reckon they will have live coverage from 15-10cet, but that probably includes a good 10 minutes of Italian chin wagging. :D

    Early startlist for Tre Valli suggest 13 WT teams and load of PC teams, plus an Italian squad. Sunweb bringing all their big guns and Movistar have both Quintanas penciled in.

    that was quite good... let's hope :chaves is alright though



    In the end Visconti may not have won without the crash, but well... it still was a gutsy move, and a deserved victory

    A treplay of the live coverage is available on PMG Sport's Website

    So that was Chaves who went down at 4km out? Nasty crash - he whacked his head on the pavement twice, but the helmet should have taken care of him on that. Still, he could have a concussion. The crash was a bit surprising - he slipped out on something in the road - dry conditions - road looking good but rough - not in the best repair. Maybe it was change in the pavement and a loss of grip.

    Thanks for the link to PMG - nice to have the coverage.

    Nicely done by Bahrain. Visconti pretty thrilled with his win!

    And nicely done by the race organization. They really put on the dog. Lookin' good.
