Strade Bianche: Tadej Pogacar claims stunning solo win

Slovenia’s two-time Tour de France winner Tadej Pogacar pulled off a stunning solo ride to win the Strade Bianche in Tuscany.

The UAE Team Emirates rider attacked with 81km of the 215km race remaining.

He finished a record two minutes 44 seconds ahead of second-placed Toms Skujins in Siena, with Britain’s defending champion Tom Pidcock fourth.

Belgium’s world road race champion Lotte Kopecky won the women’s race as Britain’s Lizzie Deignan finished 27th.

Pogacar laid down a marker with victory in what was the 25-year-old’s first race of the season

The 2020 and 2021 Tour de France winner will attempt to reclaim that crown in 2024 from Jonas Vingegaard, who has won the yellow jersey for the past two years.
