Aleksandr Riabushenko was crowned king of the Coppa Agostoni 2019 as he claimed his first professional success on Saturday.
On the finish line in Lissone, Italy, the twenty-three-year-old Belarusian out powered Alexey Lutsenko (Astana) in a two-up sprint to take yet another win for the in-form Emirati team.
Riabushenko: "The race became challenging from a long way out which reduced the group. We stayed together on the last pass on the Colle Brianza, then on the way down, Lutsenko jumped and I managed to tag along. I felt good, but I didn't know if I was faster than Lutsenko. I was in a good position in the last kilometre and I started the sprint at 150 metres and I won. I am very happy - finally my first success came after so many second places. This year was tough at the start because of physical problems but then things took a good turn and today's victory is a nice prize."
