I hope next year we can add this race and the Coppa Sabatini to the race calendar. Both races have been run for more than 60 years, the start lists are usually very similar and not too different from Milano Torino and Lombardia and they are pretty established in the cycling world. And who doesn't love races suited to climbers?  4
