“We planned to ride for Matteo Pelucchi,” the race winner for IAM Cycling, Leigh Howard, confided.“After all, he had already won here in 2011. But the day was very strange. Our plans had to change completely. The wind gusts were very impressive. Neutralizing the race proved to be a wise decision. In the final circuit, the wind was a constant. It kept changing directions, and it was very dangerous. It reminded me of the criteriums I raced when I was a younger rider in Australia. I am lucky to have had such a strong team around me. All I had to do was produce my main effort 150 meters from the line. Personally, I was in ideal conditions.”
