Tre Valli Varesine
At the Start line of the Tre Valli Varesine 95th edition there are some of the most important pro cycling team of the world championships. The last part of the Lombardia triptyque took place between Busto Arsizio and Varese, with a 9 laps circuit just inside the city that hosted the world championship some years ago. It is immediately clear that the pace will be very high, the average speed will be set quickly beyond 44km/h, it is hardly impossible to follow the race by car. A first bunch of runaways try to shake the race, but Astana plans are pretty clear as soon as they get the head of the peloton. Ups and downs of the circuit help to reach the runaways until Vincenzo Nibali tries to win the race as he will do some days later at Il Lombardia. The Italian Champion arrives lonely, with a suffering face, just turns back one last time before raising his arms to the sky, just below the Soc. Ciclistica Alfredo Binda banner, in the heart of Varese city.
