Davide Formolo (UAE Team Emirates) was disappointed to have missed out on the victory at his home race Strade Bianche, but said he suffered in the blistering near-40°C temperatures.

The Italian champion could not close the gap to solo winner Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) after the Belgian attacked on the Le Tolfe sector of sterrato 12km from Siena, but had enough energy to win the sprint for second place against Max Schachmann (Bora-Hansgrohe) at the Piazza del Campo in Siena.
