Philippe Gilbert closes out career with a victory at Beking Monaco criterium


Philippe Gilbert (Lotto Soudal) won the second edition of the Beking Monaco criterium on Sunday, November 27. In what was the final event of his career, the former world champion beat runner-up Michael Matthews (BikeExchange) and Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) in the circuit-style race.

“I am really happy. Today I won all the events of the day. The Pro-Am this morning by just one second and this afternoon, on the other hand, together with all the pros, it was a different story. With the high-level athletes here in Monaco, it was not easy. The racing was fast, and I really enjoyed riding in the company of these great champions for a charity event,” Gilbert said.
