"Spectating at Il Lombardia" was the subject of the email from PEZ-Fan Ron V. looking for tips on chasing the 'Race of the Falling Leaves'. I had the perfect itinerary for him - since I'd already done it in 2015.

05 Oct, 2015 - Vincenzo Nibali made sure he won the Tour of Lombardy with a very controlling ride.

Marcel Kittel leaves Giant-Alpecin and more contract news. A big EuroTrash Monday.
Race Report: Vincenzo Nibali cemented his place as the best descender in the sport and he used this to take a famous victory in Lombardy.

Race Preview: It can't be the end of the season already! The Giro di Lombardia seems to come round faster every year.
