Well, we wrap up the inaugural OTRL season with the Tour of the Falling Leaves or Tour of Lombardy.

A number of the ProPeloton have already hung up their cleats before or after The Worlds but there will still be those determined to sign off their season with a Monument win.

This will be 113th edition of the Tour of Lombardy and is the fifth of the season’s five Monuments.   Totalling 243 kilometres, the route for 2019 runs from Bergamo to Como.

Details of the route and riders can be found here.

Top 5 from last year were –

1. Thibaut Pinot
2. Vincenzo Nibali
3. Dylan Teuns
4. Rigoberto Uran
5. Tim Wellens (bel)

Many thanks to all for participating and hope to see you all back in 2020.  In the interim, please continue to contribute to whatever musings I can find to publish through the closed season and general stuff via Banter.  Also to recommend the site to and friends (or non friends!) as you may feel fit.

We’d be all to happy to publish any contributions you may have – please use the Contact Us and I will email you to send in any articles.
