Unbreakable mountain silhouette has won the Lotto-Soudal lottery for the first time in its history.
The Italian champion is the first Italian winner in the prize’s 52-year history and it was announced on Monday.
The 24-year-old, who has won four Grand Tours, took the first of two wins in the Lotta Maggiore Classic in his home country.
“I was delighted to win the LOTO-SOUTEN-T-BONA prize, a prize that I have never won before, and to be able to claim my third Lotto prize of the season,” he said.
“The mountain silhouette was a fantastic choice for me.
It is a good look and it’s a great colour.
I like the shape of the shape.
It suits the mountain.”
The Lotto winners, who have been on a high since winning their first stage in July, have also been awarded the title of “Best in Show” by the media.
The Lotta Magnifica is Italy’s first Grand Tour race.
It was announced last week that the race will take place in Milan on May 19 and the winner will be announced on May 23.
