UAE Team Emirates on the Podium at Strade Bianche
Belgian Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) took the victory after a solo attack with 12km to go
After a strong squad performance at the Vuelta Burgos, which included a win for Fernando Gaviria, UAE Team Emirates has continued its successful season restart with Italian National Champion, David Formolo, taking a well-earned podium spot at Strade Bianche - the first World Tour event to be hosted since racing was postponed in March.
Belgian Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) took the victory after a solo attack with 12km to go. Formolo chased hard along the white gravel roads of Tuscany to secure second place, along with Max Schachmann (Bora - Hansgrohe) who trailed behind and rounded out the top three.
Davide Formolo: "It has been a beautiful race. I really suffered with the heat, and also because we have trained for a month in altitude. It's always great to race at Strade Bianche, there a little bit of regret for having missed a beautiful victory, but the second place is a good result anyway and tops-off a good week for the team. Now I'll look towards Milan-San Remo which is a different style of parcours but we'll give give it our best."
Meanwhile at Vuelta Burgos, David De La Cruz and Fabio Aru cemented their place in the top-10 in the general classification with a strong show of form on the final day. The final stage 5 from Covarrubias to Lagunas de Neila was won by Ivan Sosa (Ineos) while Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck-QuickStep) claimed the overall
