Giacomo Nizzolo wins the 2016 GranPiemonte
As a member of the Italian national team, national champion Giacomo Nizzolo showed his great form ahead of the World Championship as he outsprinted Fernando Gaviria and Daniele Bennati to claim the 100th edition of GranPiemonte in Agliè. It was a very fast race with almost 100km covered in the first two hours. A 38-man front group rode a high tempo before France’s Stéphane Rossetto made a solo breakaway, only to be reined in with 3km to go.
