Il Lombardia

One of the Five Monuments of cycling – the last of the UCI World Tour; ‘The Race of the Falling Leaves’ – ‘La classica delle foglie morte’. I attended the 2016 edition and these photos were taken at Magreglio at the top of the Madonna del Ghisallo climb. Known as a climbers classic, this edition was won by Colombian rider Esteban Chaves of Movistar team.
