Remco Evenepoel takes aim at Il Lombardia after Coppa Bernocchi exhibition



Remco Evenepoel underscored his status among the favourites for Il Lombardia with a remarkable solo victory beneath a deluge at the Coppa Bernocchi on Monday. The Deceuninck-QuickStep rider went clear of the decisive six-man break with 31km remaining to win by almost two minutes from Alessandro Covi (UAE Team Emirates).

The win was Evenepoel’s eighth of a season that also saw him place second at the European Championships road race and third in the World Championships time trial. His final outing of 2021 will come at Il Lombardia on Saturday.
