2018 Tre Valli Varesine (HC), Italy

98th edition: Tuesday, October 9, 2018

Tre Valli Varesine podium history | 2017 edition | 2019 edition | Course map

Saronno - Varese, 203.0 kilometers

Toms Skujins

Toms Skujins is the day's fastest man.

The race: Here's the report from third-place Peter Kennaugh's Bora-hansgrohe team.

The Italian autumn classic Tre Valli Varesine took the riders over 212km from Saronno to Varese. Much of the race was led by a breakaway of five riders, but with 50km remaining, several riders, including Rafal Majka and Emanuel Buchmann, were able to bridge the gap. As part of a 14-man group, the two BORA – hansgrohe riders rode at the head of the race until they were caught with 28km remaining.

The following kilometres were characterised by a series of attacks, and Peter Kennaugh and Emanuel Buchmann were able to put themselves at the head of the race. It all came down to a sprint from a reduced group on the slightly downhill finishing straight, from which T. Skujins emerged victorious. Peter was able to secure a solid third place at the end of the day.

From the Finish Line:
“A quality field of riders took to the start today. The team rode offensively and tried to position itself at the front of the race. Emanuel [Buchmann] worked hard, so that Peter [Kennaugh] could launch an attack on the final climb. Today the team worked very well together, and in the end Peter was able to finish with a podium result. Unfortunately Pawel Poljanski was involved in a crash earlier on, but fortunately did not break anything as a result.” – Jens Zemke, Sports Director
