Filippo Pozzato will wear the Italian tricolore for the next twelve months after an impressive win in the Italian national championship race on Sunday in Imola.

The Katusha star won a sprint finish at the end of the 257km race. Pozzato relegated Damiano Cunego (Lampre NGC) to second, while Luca Paolini (Acqua & Sapone) took third.

“I have been chasing this win for many years and finally I have managed to win the title of Italian champion,” said Pozzato at the finish.

Pozzato’s win today marked the second time he has won a national title ahead of Cunego. In 1997 the compatriots finished in the same positions at the Italian school championships.

The new Italian champion immediately outlined his next objective.”I [will now] go to the Tour [de France] to win a stage with the jersey of Italian champion.”
