Michael Valgren (EF Education-Nippo) has made it two wins in two races after winning the 69th edition of the Coppa Sabatini , a day after winning the Giro della Toscana.

The Coppa Sabatini race took place around the Tuscan town of Peccioli, across a 211 kilometre route that included plenty of short and steep ascents. Valgren secured his eighth career win around the route, with Sonny Solbrelli (Bahrain-Victorious) and Mathieu Burgandeau (Team TotalEnergies) joining him on the podium.
