Pogačar Triumphs in Il Lombardia

UAE Team Emirates (Italy) - Press Release: 2021 champ out-sprints Mas in Como.

There was a repeat of the masterpiece of UAE Team Emirates from 12 months ago with Tadej Pogačar taking the win in Il Lombardia 2022 (Bergamo-Como, 253 km).

The Slovenian talent has conquered his second consecutive “Falling leaves Classic” beating Enric Mas (Movistar) on the Como lakefront in a two-up sprint.

Throughout the race, the Emirati team showed great confidence , first controlling a breakaway of 10 riders, then leading the group with a steady pace along the ascents of the Madonna del Ghisallo, San Fermo della Battaglia and approaching Civiglio, creating a selection and laying the foundations for the attack of Pogačar at -19 km from the arrival, right on the Civiglio ramps.

Only Enric Mas and Mikkel Landa (Bahrain-Victorious) managed to follow the Slovenian, then on the last pass on San Fermo della Battaglia the odds for success was reduced to just Pogačar and Mas, until the final sprint that has given UAE Team Emirates the 46th win of the season.

Results:

  1. Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) 6h21’22 “
  2. Enric Mas (Movistar) s.t.
  3. Mikkel Landa (Bahrain-Victorious) +10
