WorldTour racing continued with Il Lombardia, the second Monument of the revised late-season calendar, on Saturday with Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) taking the coveted victory ahead of George Bennett (Jumbo-Visma) in Como, Italy.

It was the second Monument that Fuglsang has won during his career after winning Liège-Bastogne-Liège in 2019. He's had a successful season so far, with overall victory at Vuelta a Andalucia Ruta Ciclista del Sol in February, followed by fifth at Strade Bianche and second overall at the Tour de Pologne, both in August.
