Patrik Sinkewitz (ISD-Neri) outsprinted Domenico Pozzovivo (CSF-Colnago) to take victory at the Giro della Romagna. The duo attacked 50km from the line and managed to stay away to the finish in Lugo.

Pozzovivo, who has gained a number of important placings on the Italian calendar in recent weeks, accelerated on the Monte Trebbio and only Sinkewitz could follow. His attempts to ride the German off his wheel came to nothing and the two collaborated from there to the finish, where Sinkewitz proved quicker in the sprint.

Sinkewitz’s ISD-Neri teammate Giovanni Visconti rounded off the podium, as the Italian champion pipped Slovak sensation Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Doimo) for third place.
