Weather at the finish city of Genova (Genoa) at 2:00 PM, local time: 22C (73F), fair, with the wind from the south at 8 km/hr (5 mph). There is a 70% chace of rain during the afternoon.

The race: Here's the report from race winner Marc Hirschi's UAE Team Emirates:

Little over a week since his win at the Tour of Hungary, Marc Hirschi struck again to clinch victory at the Giro dell’Appennino in Italy.

The 24 year old Swiss rider of UAE Team Emirates arrived in a two-man break with Cristian Rodriguez (Arkea-Samsic) to win in emphatic fashion on the 198km from Novi Ligure to Genoa.

The result marks the 30th victory of the season for UAE Team Emirates and the 3rd win of the year for Hirschi.

Hirschi: “ It’s very special to take the win today. After Hungary I took it quite easy and rested because for a race like today it’s important to arrive as fresh as possible and trust my good form from the previous races. The last climb was very difficult and I had a big chase to catch Rodriguez. Crossing the line was spectacular, there are a lot of people here and a good atmosphere.”
