GALLERY - The last ‘Monument’ of the season: UYN and the Gazprom-RusVelo team at the magical Tour of Lombardy

It’s the last of the five classic ‘Monument’ races, the end of the season, the event full of strong emotions. Once again this year it met all expectations. On Saturday 12 October, the Tour of Lombardy attracted the top cyclists and thousands of enthusiasts along its 243km route, from Bergamo to Como. 

As tradition dictates, the charming and challenging route passed through places that are part of the history of cycling: from the church of Madonna del Ghisallo, at the top of the climb in Magreglio (Como), to the Muro di Sormano, a spectacular ascent with gradients of over 25%.

The grit and determination of the champions, the enthusiasm and passion of the fans: this is what made the 113th edition of the race known as the “Classic of the falling leaves” so magical. UYN followed it along with the professionals of the Gazprom-RusVelo team, recounting the highlights through images: the waiting and preparations in the bus, the long breakaway of Petr Rikunov, the work inside the team car, the exciting finish on the shores of Lake Como.

- Aleksandr Vlasov

- Artem Nych
- Petr Rikunov
