Gallery: Iconic images from the Giro di Lombardia

The Giro di Lombardia or Il Lombardia -as it is now officially known - is the last of the five major classics of the season and traditionally bring the curtain down on the racing season.

The Italian one-day race remains one of the most iconic races in cycling thanks to the spectacular route in the hills near Lake Como.

This gallery includes images from the last 30 years of Lombardia, including Sean Kelly’s second victory on the track in 1985, Gibi Baronchelli’s lone victory in 1989 when Lombardia finished in the centre of Milan, and images of more recent winners such as Philippe Gilbert, Paolo Bettini and Dan Martin.

Tune in on Sunday for complete live coverage on Cyclingnews.

Update: This gallery was updated to include pictures from the 2013 and 2014 races.
