Billed as a secondary World Championship by organisers, the Giro di Lombardia certainly ensured a fitting send-off to what has been another enthralling season of Monuments.
From the war of attrition at Milan-San Remo, through daring attacks at Paris-Roubaix and dramatic late crashes at Liege-Bastogne-Liege, there have been plenty of memorable moments in this season’s biggest one day Classics.
And Dan Martin (Garmin-Sharp) ensured there would be one final memorable occasion by accelerating late to snatch victory and lay to rest what has been an injury-disrupted season for the Irishman.
On a day which marked Michal Kwiatkowski’s first outing as world champion and Cadel Evans’ final WorldTour race in Europe, Martin ensured he stole the headlines with a perfectly-timed attack.
And Stefano Sirotti was on hand to capture the best of the action on the revamped course from Como to Bergamo. Relive the race in the wide-screen gallery below.
