Elia Viviani proved that he is still in excellent condition at the end of the season when he won his penultimate race, the Coppa Bernocchi, in a sprint from a reduced group. The Italian only has one regret about his strong second half of the season: not being selected for the Italian World Championships team.


The main goal for the Green Machine at the Coppa Bernocchi - win; mission accomplished. Today, Italian team leader Elia Viviani won the first race of the Trittico Lombardo, a three-race cycling competition which also includes the Tre Valli Varesine and the Coppa Ugo Agostoni. Cannondale Pro Cycling showcased how great they worked together as a team, managing the race well from start to finish. Viviani won the sprint leaving behind Filippo Pozzato (Lampre-Merida) and Simone Ponzi (Neri Sottoli), while Peter Sagan, who worked to support his teammate in the finale, took 7th place.
"We were here to win, and when you're named as the favorite it's never easy to do it," said Viviani. "I'm really happy for this success - this is a great reward for my teammates and the support they gave me. We built this win during the entire race, managing the breakaway and then forcing a selection in the peloton. In the finale, even if the bunch was close to catch us, I was confident in my ability to win.

"After the Tour de France, I had a period of rest and tat was very useful for the final part of the season. In Colorado I again found the feeling with the win but, most importantly, I improved the level of my condition. I had positive signals at Brussels Classics and GP de Fourmies - today I just exploited the result of these efforts. I've only one regret - not being included in the list of the Italian team for Ponferrada. Anyway I'll be there to support my girlfriend and my colleagues."
"It was a perfect race, and one of the few we've had during the season," explained team director Alberto Volpi. "We did what we planned in the morning, and I've just to congratulate all the guys for the great work they did."
The Coppa Bernocchi Cannondale Pro Cycling's 17th success of the season, and it is Elia Viviani's 6thwin. The Italian rider will race his last race of the season this Saturday at Memorial Pantani, which he won in 2010.
