FABIO ARU
ASTANA PRO TEAM

Fabio Aru has taken the victory at the Italian National Championships. The rider of Astana crossed the finish line solo in the Italian region of Piemonte.

With 18 kilometres to go in the race, the rider attacked and showed to be almost unstoppable. Very soon he got an advantage of more than half a minute over the peloton.

Behind him, a group led by Gianni Moscon (Sky) and Damiano Caruso (BMC) tried to increase the pace to catch the Astana rider.

But the efforts were not enough and Aru crossed the finish line almost 40 seconds ahead of the chasers. Diego Ulissi (UAE-Team Emirates), Rinaldo Nocentini (Sporting Clube de Portugal/Tavira), Caruso and Moscon completed the top five.

The best result Aru had achieved at the road race of the Italian Championships was a second place behind Matteo Trentin in 2011.
