Tre Valli Varesine, 197.8km

Tao Geoghegan Hart secured an eighth-placed finish after an active performance from Team INEOS at Tre Valli Varesine.
 
The one-day race culminated in finishing circuits in Varese, with Eddie Dunbar making his way into a strong breakaway group in the closing stages.
 
Chasing solo leader Luis Leon Sanchez (Astana), the sizeable group followed a motorbike the wrong way around a roundabout, taking themselves out of the equation in the final kilometres.
 
Geoghegan Hart and Salvatore Puccio pushed hard to eat into the advantage of Sanchez, providing a launchpad for Gianni Moscon in the final kilometre.
 
The Italian hauled back Sanchez, but was unable to do anything about the stinging counter attack from Primoz Roglic. The Jumbo-Visma rider stayed clear to win by three seconds, with Geoghegan Hart picking up a top 10 in the peloton, three seconds back.
