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.
