The last classic of two classics

The Lombardy Tour is known as The classic of dead leaves, due to its autumn location on the calendar, traditionally in the month of October. Along with the leaves on the trees, the curtain also falls on the cycling season with the celebration of the last Monument. It is a day of goodbyes. Some definitive. This year 2022 two classics also fall in the last classic: Alexander Valverde Y Vincenzo Nibali. It is the goodbye of two sports greats. Two historical. There is a wonderful photo of the return that defines the moment that will be lived today in Lombardy. In it you can see the platoon forming a corridor while they applaud the Spanish and the Italian, Balaverde and to Strait Shark, which roll between them. It is the tribute of the teammates to two champions who leave with an excellent track record, still competitive at 42 and 37 years old, respectively. Valverde put the padlock with 133 victories in his track record, including the worldthe Back to Spain and four times the Liege. Nibali he is one of only seven riders to have won all three majors: tours, Turn Y Lap.

Today they say goodbye in Lombardy, a classic that Nibali dominated in 2015 and 2017 and that Valverde caressed three times in second place. Knowing the two, they will surely try to win it. Don’t be surprised if they do. Both say goodbye at the highest level. Especially Alejandro, who has finished second in the Agostoni Cupa third in the Three Varesian Valleys and a room in Emilia’s Twist, in his last three races, before putting the Lombard brooch. That is the best way to sign the end: by your own decision and at the top. Alberto counter he left the day after being crowned in the Angliru. This leaves a better flavor. Spain loses its last great champion, surely also the most versatile. An unrepeatable runner who fires his last bullet… while the leaves fall.
