Frenchman Samuel Dumoulin took victory at the 181km Grand Prix Insubria on Saturday. He won after outsprinting the 10 other riders in the same leading group. Spaniard Jose Joaquin Rojas Gil (Caisse d'Epargne) and Irishman Nicolas Roche (AG2R - La Mondiale) finished second and third.

The group had formed with 15 riders, but was whittled down to 11 after an attack on the last climb, with a little over two kilometers to go until the finish.

World Champion Cadel Evans (BMC Racing Team) was among the attackers. He finished fifth after fourth-place rider Leonardo Bertagnolli (Androni Giocattoli Serramenti PVC Diquigiovanni).

Five riders formed the main break of the day, including Stephane Auge (Cofidis, Le Credit En Ligne), John-Lee Augustyn (Sky Professional Cycling Team), Stefano Borchi (De Rosa - Stac Plastic), Schnyder (Price Custom) and Alberto Di Lorenzo (Zheroquadro Radenska). They were off the front from kilometre 27 to 162, with a maximum advantage of 5:45 at the 65km point. Di Lorenzo took all the intermediate contests along the way.

The race came alive during the final two laps of the finishing circuit. On the first ascent of the Formarco, Eros Capecchi (Footon Servetto) and Rinaldo Nocentini (AG2R La Mondiale) went to the front, but Nocentini crashed on the subsequent descent and had to be taken to the hospital. Examination revealed that he broke his tibia and fibula. He will be out of competition for an indefinite period while he recuperates.

Evans and Leonardo Bertagnolli (Diquigiovanni Androni) were active on the last lap of the circuit as was Nicolas Roche (AG2R La Mondiale). In the end 11 of 15 riders were left to contest the final sprint, won by Dumolin.

Race note: Mauro Santambrogio was also taken to the hospital after a crash during the race, but reportedly suffered only bruises and no broken bones.
