Title number 5! Filippo Ganna once again wins Italian national time-trial championships

The national championships taking place this Thursday are of high importance and feature big stars. Italy, France, Belgium and Switzerland are among the nations racing their time-trial nationals today, and in Italy we have seen Filippo Ganna take his fifth national title in six years.

The INEOS Grenadiers rider is building himself a strong track record. At 27 years of age he is already conquering his fifth title in the discipline, and the third in a row. This is his second win of the season, following his triumph at the Giro d'Italia. Like teammate Joshua Tarling who won in Great Britain, he will also travel for an altitude training camp soon to prepare for the Olympic Games.

Ganna did not have an easy time on the 35-kilometer course in Grossetto however, as he faced difficult and in-form competition. Edoardo Affini of Team Visma | Lease a Bike took Ganna to the limit and finished with a time only 24 seconds slower. Filippo Baroncini was third 55 seconds back, followed by Jonathan Milan and Matteo Trentin.
