After his victory yesterday at the Giro della Toscana, Pavel Sivakov was once again looking good in Italy here and led alongside Marc Hirschi as the race entered the final 30km with a small group containing the likes of Tadej Pogacar, Richard Carapaz, Guillaume Martin and Alexey Lutsenko chasing hard behind.
As they began climbing the Peccioli climb for the penultimate time with just over 12km to go, the leading duo were clear by 59 seconds. Though that time gap was closing by the time they reached the final climb to the finish line, 26 seconds still separated leaders and chasers with 1km to go. Sivakov attempted to go early but Hirschi quickly covered it and when the Swiss made his move their was no answer.
