The Groupama-FDJ cycling Team wins Il Lombardia 2018 with Thibaut Pinot

Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) won Il Lombardia 2018 after dropping his nearest rival Vincenzo Nibali and riding solo to the line.

The Frenchman was the strongest man in northern Italy and stuck with Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) and Primož Roglič (LottoNL-Jumbo) in their decisive move with almost 50km to ride.

Pinot dropped Nibali in the final and rode away, leaving the rest of the field to battle for the podium.

Nibali came in second with a gap over a chasing group and Dylan Teuns (BMC Racing) won the small group sprint for third.

Great job Groupama-FDJ cycling Team and great job Thibaut
