For the second consecutive year, Lampre-Fondital's sprinter Danilo Napolitano won the Coppa Bernocchi, the final race in the Trittico Lombardo series of one-day races in northern Italy. Right from the start, the Lampre team controlled the race, keeping any breaks in check, before team-mate Claudio Corioni put Napolitano in a perfect position to take the win.
"I'm very happy," said 25 year-old Napolitano after the race. "It's never easy to win again, but this year things went even better; my fitness is very good and my team-mates have been fantastic. I want to thank the whole team. Now I'm looking with optimism at the Vuelta."
"We've been perfect and we've obtained a great victory," added direttore sportivo Giuseppe Martinelli. "The whole team worked hard, the two Chinese riders too. My compliments to all my athletes."
