Riabushenko wins Coppa Agostoni
Belarusian claims beautiful first win
First professional success for Aleksandr Riabushenko, king of the Coppa Agostoni 2019.
On the finish line in Lissone, the twenty-three-year-old Belarusian bettered Alexey Lutsenko (Astana) in a two-up sprint.
The duo went clear after the last pass of the Colle Brianza, just over 40 km from the finish.
Riabushenko: “The race became challenging from a long way out which reduced the group. We stayed together on the last pass on the Colle Brianza, then on the way down, Lutsenko jumped and I managed to tag along. I felt good, but I didn’t know if I was faster than Lutsenko. I was in a good position in the last kilometere and I started the sprint at 150 meters and I won. I am very happy – finally my first success came after so many second places. This year was tough at the start because of physical problems but then things took a good turn and today’s victory is a nice prize “.
