Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck-Quickstep) won the Coppa Bernocchi today in Legnano, Italy. Alessandro Covi (UAE Emirates) was 2nd and Fausto Masnada (Deceuninck-Quickstep) finished 3rd. Team Qhubeka NextHash took on today’s Coppa Bernocchi with a strong team, that also included the 2016 winner of the race, Giacomo Nizzolo. Torrential rain in and around Legnano made it a different race to that of previous years though, which suited the sprinters somewhat. After a fast start, a high-quality 6 rider breakaway went clear. Evenepoel was joined by his teammate, Masnada together with Thibaut Pinot, Alessandro Covi, Samuele Battistella and Antonio Puppio from our Qhubeka Continental team. Puppio was part.
