Landa wins stage 2 at Coppi e Bartali

Landa wins stage 2 at Coppi e Bartali

Basque climber from Movistar Team puts end to long year, full of misfortune.

Just five days after his return to racing following nearly two months of stop after an injury in his 2019 debut in Mallorca, Mikel Landa offered the Movistar Team a very pleasant surprise with a win at the Settimana Coppi e Bartali, more than a year after his first ever success in Blue at the 2018 Tirreno-Adriatico. The Basque climber, well supported by his team-mates in a short, yet very tough 140km stage two, attacked, following a previous attempt by Rubén Fernández, on the slopes of the decisive Monte Tiffi, taking with him Lucas Hamilton, a colleague of then-race leader Robert Stannard.

The 40" gap achieved by Landa, atop on his Canyon equipped with Campagnolo Super Record EPS electronic groupset and Campagnolo Bora 35 wheels, at the top of the GPM kept him away, despite late attempts from counter-attacker Evgeny Shalunov, to successfully contest the uphill finish on the cobblestones of Sogliano al Rubicone.
