Giovanni Visconti won the Italian National Championship road race on Sunday, beating Paolo Bossoni (Team Lampre) and Davide Rebellin (Team Gerolsteiner) at the end in a sprint. At 12 kilometers to go, Rebellin made his move. Visconti, Bossoni, and Christian Murro (Tenax-Menikini) took the wheels of the Gerolsteiner's rider. The four were able to keep the peloton away until the final meters.
"I'm over the moon," Visconti said, "I have thought about this race for a long time. The teamwork was perfect, and Bettini helped me a lot to stay calm and concentrate for the final. It's the best moment of my career. I won a lot when I was an espoir but nothing is comparable to this fantastic day!"
It was the 24-year-old's second victory after the 2006 Coppa Sabatini.
