Milano Sanremo: Alone on the Cipressa

Matteo Bono (Lampre Merida) pressed on with the advantage that he gained on the Cape Berta.  As he began the ascent of the Cipressa, he found himself on his own.  His only company was a neutral service motorcycling and one of the official's motos that supervise the race along the entire course.  The Cipressa is the penultimate climb of the race so Bono only has the much shorter Piaggio to scale before the line in Sanremo.
