Hirschi calls himself out for Lombardy

Marc Hirschi hoped until the end to win the GranPiemonte but had to settle for second place behind Andrea Bagioli.

"Definitely I am a little bit disappointed with the second place because I came so close to victory,” admitted the Swiss rider. “I was good, but Andrea Bagioli è was more so. I launched the final sprint from the last position, I flanked him but without being able to put my wheel in front of his".

"Lombardy è a different race than the one we just faced. I think it’s too hard for me, but it’s very good for Tadej Pogacar and also for Adam Yates, who è in very good shape" concluded the bearer of the’UAE Team Emirates.
