Trek-Segafredo's Gianluca Brambilla has taken the victory of the last stage of the Tour des Alpes Maritimes et du Var and with it he also took the overall win of the race.

The last stage of the French competition took the peloton through a 136-kilometre route with a start and finish in Blausasc, that featured three climbs of the first category. The Italian rider -who started the day in the 17th GC position at 13 seconds from the then leader Michael Woods- was part of a leading group of 16 men and managed to drop them all along the challenging course of the day and crossed the line by himself, 13 seconds ahead of Tao Geoghegan Hart, Ben O'Connor, Rudy Molard and Valentin Madouas.

A second group, that included the two first men of the classification after the second stage -Woods and Bauke Mollema- arrived to the finish line 18 seconds behind Brambilla, which wasn't enough to take the first spot of the final podium.

This is the first race of the season for the Italian, who from here will start at the Trofeo Laigueglia, Strade Bianche and the Volta a Catalunya, before focusing on the Giro d'Italia.
