Climbing classification won

“Everything went very well on my home streets and on my training course. My family and friends were there and that motivated me,” explained Mauro Santambrogio, who comes from the town of Inverigo near Lake Como. “It was a very difficult race, which took us over a few of the Tour of Lombardy’s climbs. The last part was very successful for us. Steve Morabito accompanied Mauro Santambrogio during all of the climbs. He did a good job. Mauro won the points for the last climb,” said a delighted René Savary, BMC Racing Team Assistant Director. Steve Morabito crossed the finish line with the second group. Victory was claimed by Francesco Gavazzi (Lampre).
