Bauke Mollema, Il Lombardia 2019

The 114th ‘Race of the Falling Leaves’ returns in a new slot just two weeks before the Tour de France.

Usually the last of five Monuments to take place in the World cycling series, Il Lombardia returns tomorrow two months earlier than its usual date as the second classic in this year’s revised UCI calendar

Deceuninck-QuickStep’s Remco Evenepoel will be on the offensive chasing his first monument win across the 231km route that’s moulded around Italy’s Lake Como and some of the country’s most celebrated smaller climbs.

Unsurprisingly, things will look a little different this year with the route having been shortened by 12km, but none of the race’s iconic sections have been compromised, so major climbs like the Muro di Sormano (The Wall of Sormano) or the Civiglio, an explosive stretch for last minute attacks just 16.7km away from the finish, remain unchanged.   

2019 Il Lombardia winner Bauke Mollema took the title in 5hrs 52mins 59secs, ahead of Alejandro Valverde and Egan Bernal with a solo breakaway reminiscent of his Tour De France win in 2017. But with Evenepoel’s four solid stage-race wins already this year, the 20-year-old could offer the kind of upset that Trek-Segafredo and its trio of potential winners is hoping to avoid; the kind of stuff we love to watch. 

Whether you’re in the UK, US or Australia, here’s how to watch the 2020 Il Lombardia.
