Il Lombardia is traditionally the fifth and final Monument Classic of the year and see many of the world's biggest names – Grand tour riders and Classics specialists - go against each other during the hilly Italian one-day Classic.
While many riders will see Il Lombardia as an opportunity to grab the big win that has perhaps eluded them this season, there are at least as many who are looking forward to a well-deserved rest before recommencing their winter training. It makes for a smaller, elite group that battles it out for the honours in Como or Bergamo, with the likes of Nibali, Roglič, Bernal, Gilbert, Valverde and Dan Martin amongst recent contenders and winners.
The 32-year-old attacked on the penultimate climb of the Civiglio with 18km to go after a brief lull in the lead group, and despite a late chase from a group that contained the winners of this year's Tour de France, the Trek-Segafredo rider hung on to win ahead of Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) and Egan Bernal (Team Ineos).
This year the race, known as the 'Race of the Falling Leaves' for its normal October slot, takes place mid-August because of the reshuffling of events due to the coronavirus pandemic.
With riders keen to grab any results they can in the shortened season and with far fresher legs than normal for Il Lombardia, it's likely going to be the most competitive edition in years.
