Outstanding Elia Viviani wins Italian Road Title
After a tremendous ride, the 29-year-old earned the right to wear the tricolore for the next 12 months.
30-Jun-2018: Elia Viviani's dream season in the Quick-Step Floors jersey continued in Darfo Boario, where the Italian crowned himself National Champion for the first time in his career, after claiming his 14th victory of the year, one that came just one month from Elia's triumph in the maglia ciclamino classification at the Giro d'Italia.
"It's a dream come true and I am extremely proud and honored to show the beautiful colors of Italy in in the peloton over the next 12 months. On the podium I cried because I was overcome with emotion once things started to sink in. I can't wait for my first race with this superb jersey", an over the moon Elia said after his brilliant performance, which netted the 45th UCI win of Quick-Step Floors in 2018.
Lining out at the start of the 233km-long event after a perfect outing at the newly-created Adriatica Ionica race, Viviani counted on three Quick-Step Floors teammates - Eros Capecchi, Davide Martinelli and Fabio Sabatini - who kept the five-man breakaway in check and protected Elia until the final two laps, when several surges split the peloton on the hilly and fast circuit around Darfo Boario.
