The 111th edition of the Tour of Lombardy will be held on Saturday the 7th of October, 2017. The fifth of cycling’s five Monuments is the last illustrious European race of the season. Given the time of year, Il Lombardia has been nicknamed the ‘Race of the Falling Leaves’.
In 2016 it was Esteban Chaves who took the flowers. The Colombian outsprinted his fellow escapees Diego Rosa and Rigoberto Uran.
