Per sempre Alfredo (1.1) Italy

1st edition, Sunday, March 21, 2021

Per sempre Alfredo podium history | Course map

Florence - Sesto Fiorentino, 162.1 km

Matteo Moschetti

Matteo Moschetti wins the first Per sempre Alfredo race.

Weather at the finish city of Sesto Fiorentino at 12:30 PM, local time: 9C (48F), partly cloudy, with the wind from the northeast at 34 km/hr (21 mph). No rain is forecast. There is a potential for high winds during the afternoon.

The race: Here's the organizer's race summary

It was the Milanese Matteo Moschetti, a talent born in '96 of Trek-Segafredo, who won the first edition of the "Per sempre Alfredo", a professional race held today between Florence and Sesto Fiorentino to honor the memory of the historic blue technical commissioner Alfredo Martini .

Moschetti, who last year had won two wins at the beginning of the season before suffering a fracture of the pelvis following a fall, has thus returned to success on the Tuscan roads, definitively putting behind that unfortunate episode that affected 2020.

Second position for Spaniard Mikel Aristi (Euskaltel Euskadi) and third for Samuele Zambelli, here competing with the Italian national team).

Per Sempre Alfredo race start

The race begins. What a setting! This is at the Piazzale Michelangelo, a viewpoint across the Arno River from Florence. You can see the famed dome of the Florence Cathedral in the distance.

The event, commissioned by the “Per sempre Alfredo” Committee and organized with the technical direction of the Emilia Sports Group, started at noon precisely from the suggestive setting of Piazzale Michelangelo, which dominates Florence from above. In the first half of the route, with four climbs, the group split, so much so that several sprinters remained in the second part, but from the middle of the race onwards the reunification took place and, in the four laps of the Sesto Fiorentino undulating circuit, always proceeded compactly, with the men of Trek-Segafredo and Vini Zabù very active in the lead.

Four kilometers from the finish, however, a fall (without consequences) knocked out, among others, Mareczko, Battaglin, Fiorelli and Malucelli. The platoon split up and there were about 25 runners left in front, with Moschetti who set them in the sprint. To win the special classification of the mountain grand prix was Christian Scaroni of Gazprom-Rusvelo. Best youngster at the finish line, the home talent (he lives just a few kilometers from Sesto Fiorentino) Tommaso Nencini who finished in eighth place.
