Michael Valgren (EF Education-Nippo) entered his name into the history books as the first Danish winner of the Giro della Toscana, taking out a solo victory after an attack with 14.3km still to race.

Alessandro De Marchi, riding for the Italian national team, attacked in the final kilometre to finish 1:13 behind Valgren, with Diego Ulissi (UAE Team Emirates) winning the sprint for third place five seconds behind De Marchi.

EF Education-Nippo took on the race, with Rigoberto Uran and Sergio Higuita going on the attack on the first climb of the Monte Serra climb overlooking Pisa. The USA’s Neilson Powless then attacked on the second time over Monte Serra, before Valgren took over on the fast flat roads to the finish in Pontedera. 

The Danish rider time trialed his way to victory as his rivals attacked each other Higuita and Powless helped dissuade the chase.
