Santambrogio Eighth At Giro di Lombardia

16. October 2010

Como, Italy

Mauro Santambrogio rode to an eighth-place finish in a rain-soaked and chilly edition of Giro di Lombardia, the final race of the year for the BMC Racing Team.

Dangerous Descents
Several BMC Racing Team riders crashed during the 260-kilometer race: Alessandro Ballan, Cadel Evans, Karsten Kroon and Jeff Louder. None were seriously hurt, Directeur Sportif John Lelangue said. "It was a pretty incredible race," Lelangue said. "Mauro gave everything at the end to repass some of the guys from the break. It was a great performance for him to earn some points for the world classification." Philippe Gilbert (Omega Pharma-Lotto) soloed to win for the second straight year.
