Davide Formolo (UAE Team Emirates) has soloed to his second one-day victory in two weeks in the Veneto Classic, Italy’s last road race of the 2023 season.
Second last year and already victorious in the Coppa Agostoni two weeks ago, Formolo stormed away four kilometres from the finish of the technical, hilly Classic to win ahead of teammate Marc Hirschi (UAE Team Emirates) and Filippo Zana (Jayco-AIUIa).
The race between Mel and Bassano del Grappa, featuring sections of gravel and offroad in the finale, came down to the last 10 kilometres when Zana attacked on the second last climb, only for Hirschi and then Formolo to bridge across.
Formolo then launched a blistering attack on the ultra-steep Contra Soarda and, with Hirschi shadowing Zana, was able to stay away for the win.
