Giacomo Nizzolo is the Italian Road Champion 2016. The 27-year age Milanese succeeds Vincenzo Nibali after a tactically perfect race.

The rider made a spectacle attack in the last climb while leading the race and then, on the descent, he has been great in catching Gianluca Brambilla, who could not do anything in the final sprint against a so stronger opponent.

"The tricolor jersey is really special, in my young career I was never able to win it - he said - I dedicate this victory to myself and to all the people who are close to me during the year."

This is the fourth win for Giacomo, several times on the podium this year: he had previously won the stages in Tour of Croatia, in Gp Gippingen in Switzerland and, for the second consecutive year, the points standing at the Giro d’Italia.

From today, and for a whole year, Nizzolo will wear the Trek-Segafredo shirt with the addition of the tricolore.
