October 4/15 12:02 pm - Il Lombardia results

Vincenzo Nibali (Astana Pro Team) won the 109th Il Lombardia, after a gruelling 245km ride from Bergamo to Como.

"What a fantastic day. My team was perfect all day and I really wanted to reward them with the win. I tried to get away twice on the climbs, but I was too closely marked and I realised that I would have to try something different, so I had another go on the descent from the Civiglio. My team-mates were exceptional, starting with Vanotti and Agnoli early on, all the way to Landa, who was brilliant, and Rosa, who was still strong in the closing kilometres. It was not easy, but we did not relent all race, and I am truly happy now."
