Diego Ulissi claimed victory in the Memorial Marco Pantani one-day race on Saturday, leading a proud Italian charge that saw Giovanni Visconti take second and Vincenzo Nibali third. 

The trio, all competing for the Italian national team rather than their trade teams, opened up a lead on the Montevecchio climb with over 60km remaining and managed to hold off the peloton for the remainder of the race. When it came to the sprint finish in Cesenatico, Ulissi got the better of his compatriots but they all took pleasure in a job well done. Kristian Sbaragli (MTN-Qhubeka) led the bunch home for fourth.

It is Ulissi's second victory of the season after his Giro d'Italia stage win and, with encouraging displays at the Tour de Pologne recently, his form bodes well for the World Championships road race next weekend.
