Picture This: Moreno Moser Victorious In Piazza del Campo

I mentioned the 22 year old Italian, Moreno Moser, as a possible contender in the Strade Bianche preview and he proved to be the man to beat as he rode solo to victory in Siena's Piazza del Campo ahead of team-mate Peter Sagan putting in his decisive final attack on the 16% run in to the City square after riding away un-marked from Fabian Cancellara and co in the final 20km to join the leading break-away group where he dropped them on the run in to the finish. A remarkable home win for the Italian but today I'm feeling a little smug - this is definitely not the first time has singled out Moser, in fact we have been banging his drum for the last year here, here and here. This win certainly makes Moser one to watch for the remainder of the classics season, and beyond.
