Il Lombardia: One of These Four

Diego Rosa (Astana) had been given free rein by his leader Fabio Aru.  Aru seemed not to have the legs for this long race at the end of the season and felt sure that his teammate could take the win for the team.  Rosa had managed to bridge across to the other three; Johan Esteban Chaves (Orica-BikeExchange), Romain Bardet (Ag2r), and Rigoberto Uran (Cannondale-Drapac).  With around a minute over those behind and just 29 kilometers to race, it was beginning to look like the winner of the race would come from the quartet.  Uran and Rosa had done quite a bit of effort to be out front, but both Bardet and Chaves had managed to keep their noses out of the wind.
