Pinotti bounces back to win final TT

Marco Pinotti (BMC Racing) bounced back from a career-threatening crash in last year’s Giro to win the final stage in Milan.

With the GC riders battling in his wake, Pinotti set a blistering pace over the 28.2km course in Milan to win the final-day time trial for the second time inside four years.

“After what happened last year to me, I am most proud to come back to this level and be able to win again,” Pinotti said. “It means a lot to me because you never know when you have a bad injury like that. It was a lot of work to get back here.”
