International news logo

Francesco Ginanni has become the first rider to double in Italy's one-day classic, Trofeo Laigueglia, since Eddy Merckx and Filippo Pozzato. The 24 year-old Italian out-sprinted Francesco Gavazzi (Lampre-Farnese Vini) after his Androni Giocattoli helped pull back the day's escape.

Ginanni wants to further the link to Merckx and Pozzato, adding his name to the list of Milan-San Remo winners.
