The organizing company of the classic Monument: «Two events of international level and of great importance should not take place on the same date. Finding an optimal solution “
On Friday the Ineos-Grenadiers team and Filippo Ganna formalized the assault on the Hour record on Saturday 8 October at 20, on the Swiss velodrome of Grenchen. It is the same day as the Giro di Lombardia, the fifth and last classic Monument of the season. For this reason, RCS Sport, which organizes Lombardia and other Gazzetta dello Sport races, has issued the following press release.
“Upon hearing the news of Filippo Ganna’s Hour record attempt on 8 October – the same day as Il Lombardia, the last Monument race of the season -, RCS Sport considers this coincidence inappropriate. Two events of international level and of great importance for professional cycling should not take place on the same date. RCS Sport hopes that an optimal solution can soon be found to allow enthusiasts and professionals to follow both these wonderful challenges “.
