Durbridge beats favourite, Kirghizstan rider to time trial title

Neben too quick for Whitelaw in women's race

Australia’s Luke Durbridge and America’s Amber Neben are the new champions of the Memorial Davide Fardelli, winning their respective categories at time trial’s sixth edition held in Bergamo, Italy.

At his first participation Durbridge covered the 25.05 kilometres in 31:44 minutes, setting an average of 47.359 km/h. Eugen Wacker, who belongs to the Kirghizstan national team, took second ahead of German Marcel Kittel (Thuringer Energie Team), the pre-race favourite.

Neben stopped the clock at 34:36 minutes in the women’s race, going one better than her second place from last year. Despite the strong breeze throughout her run Australia’s Vicki Whitelaw (Lotto Ladies Team) also had a strong rider to second place ahead of Noemi Cantele (Columbia HTC Women).
