Elia Viviani and Peter Sagan celebrate their one-two finish.
Liquigas's young sprinter won stage 4 at the Tour of Beijing
Viviani explained to Cyclingnews in a video interview: "Today was very, very fast on big roads. The team was fantastic to me. Peter Sagan [who finished second], [Davide] Cimolai, all the team rode for me."
Concerning the Tour of Beijing's final stage on Sunday, on an all-flat course from Tian An Men Square to the Water Cube in the Olympic Village, he said: "Tomorrow I hope I can repeat it."
Understandably the young Italian has rising ambitions for 2012: sprints at stage races like perhaps the Giro d'Italia, Classics ("I hope to be good at the Tour of Flanders and Milan-San Remo," he said) and the Olympic Games on the track, where he'll vie for a medal in the omnium.
Last year Viviani won the omnium title at his national championships and followed that performance with a victory this year in the under 23 European Championship omnium event. The Italian won a silver medal in the 2011 elite track world championships in the scratch race and has previously notched junior and under 23 European Championship scratch, points and Madison titles.
