After 199km Astana rider Fabio Felline sprints to his first win of the season, taking the victory after a demanding day in the saddle, while Manuele Boaro represented Astana Pro Team in the day´s breakaway.

The 17th edition of the one-day race took the riders from Castrocaro Terme e Terra del Sole over almost 200 kilometers to Cesenatico. The circuit included three times the climb Montevecchio before the race headed towards the final laps.

The race was marked by many attacks and counter attacks. Manuele Boaro was quite active at the front of the race, presenting the Astana Pro Team colors.
On the final laps, the breakaway was caught and a bunch sprint was set up. The Kazakh team started to form their lead-out for their sprinter Fabio Felline. In an exciting and fast finale, the Italian rider sprinted to his first win of the season.

- What can I say, it is such a relief to take this win. My last win was some time ago, therefore I am so happy to have won today. I want to say thanks to the team for doing such an amazing job, bringing me into position. But also to our main sponsor Samruk-Kazyna for their trust in me. It was a long and demanding day, but we worked very well together and took control of the race. Heading into the finale, the guys brought me into position and I waited for the perfect moment to go and then I just went. I am super happy with my result as it shows that all the hard work of the last few months has paid off. I had a change in my program after my crash at Strade Bianche, we changed my race calendar and taking the win here gives me confident for my upcoming races as well.– Fabio Felline

- We are very happy, Fabio and also the whole team worked hard today and deserved the victory. It was a long day in the saddle and approaching the finale, the boys started to form the lead-out for Fabio. He rode a great race and stayed in a good position heading into the finale. It was a nice victory and I am really happy with our performance today.- Giuseppe Martinelli
