Nizzolo wins 100th Giro del Piemonte in Final Sprint

Italian national champion Giacomo Nizzolo outsprinted Fernando Gaviria (Etixx - QuickStep) and Daniele Bennati (Tinkoff)

Nizzolo commented: "A perfect sprint after a race run at very high levels and high speed. I'm very happy because this morning I was fine, and on the climbs I felt very good. The final sprint was a fairly technical, I risked the last corner, but I'm happy for the feeling that I had. Felline lead me out to the last kilometre, then I went alone as I saw the ending was technical. In the end I was right."

"Today was the last race before the World Cup, I could not ask for anything better. Winning after a fast race ahead two top opponents with good condition is a good thing. My goal from the Italian Nationals was always the World" - added Nizzolo  "I did not get the results I wanted in the Eneco Tour but I had a good feeling and condition today."
