Eurosport will be broadcasting the final Monument of the 2017 season on Saturday, October 7, with live coverage of Il Lombardia

Il Lombardia, the autumn Monument, pits many of the peloton’s best climbers and puncheurs against each other on a hilly course, travelling 257 kilometres between Bergamo and Como on Saturday, October 7.

The 2017 route has reverted to the same one used in 2015, when Italian home favourite Vincenzo Nibali claimed victory in the ‘Race of the Falling Leaves’.

Last year’s edition was won by Esteban Chaves, who became the first Colombian to take the win in the prestigious race. He’s been ruled out of the 2017 race due to injury.

Eurosport will be showing the race once again, with two hours of live coverage broadcast on Eurosport 2 in the afternoon.

If you don’t have a chance to catch the action live, you can always catch up with the highlights broadcast at regular intervals on Saturday night/Sunday.
