Two out of three for Moscon in Tour of the Alps

Italian Ineos rider Gianni Moscon won a second stage in three days on Wednesday after a 162km run between Imst and Naturns on the Tour of the Alps.

Moscon, who is hoping to make the cut with his Ineos team for the three-week Giro d’Italia starting May 8 in Turin, added this impressive breakaway win to his stage 1 solo triumph at Innsbruck.

Four riders broke away from the main pack with 22km to go and Moscon ended the stage with a narrow win on the line ahead of Felix Grossschartner with Michael Storer third.

Tuesday’s stage winner Simon Yates of Bike Exchange held the overall lead of the five-day race finishing in the main pack.

Defending champion Pavel Sivakov fell mid-stage but the Russian climber managed to rejoin the main peloton.
