At the stage from Piacenza to Sestola, the 29-year-old Dombrovsky had most of the rankings ‘non-cyclists’ power, with the biggest success of his career. “I felt good about the last 50 kilometers and tried not to do my best because I knew the final climb was going to be really difficult. I managed to bounce, and even though it didn’t work in the pink jersey, the stage triumphed,” said Dombrovsky, his first professional win outside of the United States, too. Good end of the day. “
He defeated a member of the Emirati team Emirates De Marchi after 187 km and a difficult climb shortly before the end by 13 seconds, but won the race leader’s precious jersey. He has undressed fellow countryman Filippo Jean, who has been riding in it since winning the opening trial on Saturday. On Tuesday, the world champion pulled out in the hills.
Feeling of winning 🙌🏻🏆🇮🇹
