The 25th Granfondo Pinarello took place Sunday 10 July with 2222 registered riders leaving from historic Porta San Tomaso in Treviso, Italy, on what would be the 100th birthday anniversary of Nani Pinarello, the founder of the world famous bike company bearing his name.
Lining up in front of the starting corral to lead the peloton out of the city was Miguel Indurain, winner of five Tour de France titles aboard Pinarello built bikes, and two stars of Team Ineos – Elia Viviani and Salvatore Puccio.
In a sprint photo finish for the 153 kilometers long race with 2250 meters in altitude, 33 year-old former professional biathlete Pietro Dutto (Team Mentecorpo) edged out Tommaso Elettrico (Team CPS) and Manuel Senni (ASD Borello) to win his second in a row Granfondo Pinarello title in 4:05:14.
Dutchwoman Martha Maltha (WV Cycling Sneek), fresh off of winning Maratona dles Dolomites last weekend, triumphed once again, arriving solo at the finish in 4:31:27 and 32nd overall. Maria Elena Palmisano (4:34:42) was next and Eva Zorman (4:40:56) earned the final podium step.
The 114 kilometers long medio fondo went to Federico Vilella (ASD New Molini Dolo), who finished in second place last year. Enrico Ferrian and Marco Tomassini finished second and third respectively.
Among the medio fondo women, Elodie Lollierou won in 3:00:05, with Lisa de Cesare and Alessia Bortoli claiming the silver and bronze medals.
Miguel Indurain, 57, finished the gran fondo in 4:41:02 in 88th position overall.
