The exciting victory of the Australian Harrison Sweeny in the 92nd Il Piccolo Lombardia, are still alive in the head and heart of the organizers of the Velo Club Oggiono.
The international cycling classic for the Under 23 category, race last 4th ottore in Oggiono (Lecco), has really embraced the whole world with a podium more international than ever. In fact, second place went to the Danish Jacob Hindsgaul Madsen (Uno-X Pro Cycling Team) and third place to the Eritrean Yakob Debesay (Equipe Cycliste Groupama-FDJ). For the first time in history the podium is completely foreign and even embraces three different continents.
To this satisfaction, for the organizers, in these days also the very positive response from the International Cycling Union (UCI) that in its final report wrote: "VC Oggiono has organized a high level race in compliance with the general and specific regulations for the resumption of the 2020 season. High level of safety and participation. Beautiful and varied race, an audience that participated with the usual passion. Excellent willingness of the organizers to interact with the athletes and the commissioners".
Particularly appreciated was the attention paid to safety, in the race with 12 police motorbikes, two cars and 14 motorbikes from the technical escort, and outside the race with the excellent signage, the availability of the staff, the supervision of the crossings and the attention also to the anti Covid-19 regulations.
