Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal. Late escape plays the victory

Several attacks inside last two laps of the UCI WorldTour one-day race Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal (205,7 km) let to formation of a late group of leaders of 6 riders. To the last 10 km this break was able to get 30 seconds of advantage, enough to play the race victory.

Italian Diego Ulissi became the new winner of the Grand Prix de Montréal, overpassing Spaniard Jesus Herrada and Dutch rider Tom-Jelte Slagter.

Until the very last lap there were three riders of Astana Team inside the main group: Oscar Gatto, Andriy Grivko and Moreno Moser did a good race trying to be in front the whole day. After the late break went away, Astana riders found themselves in a chasing group. Finally, Oscar Gatto became the best Astana performer with 46th position.

For one of Astana Proteam leaders Jakob Fuglsang these two races in Canada became a good point to come back in racing after an injury and to prepare himself for the final part of the season.

- Today, I felt much better than in Québec. Indeed, this race was quite fast and hard, but, in general, I was able to hold the speed and to stay well in the group. I am happy to come here and to do these races. It will help me a lot in a last few races of the season, - explained Jakob Fuglsang.
