Tour of Lombardy changes again: start in Bergamo, finish in Como | Tour of Lombardy

In 2021 Tadej Pogacar expanded his honors list by sprinting faster in Bergamo than home driver Fausto Masnada.

A year later, the roles are reversed. Not those of the protagonists, but those of start and finish.

Bergamo is now organizing the start of the 116th edition, after 253 km the finish is in Como.

So the final looks different in this edition with the top of the Madonna del Ghisallo as the crowbar at more than 60 kilometers from the finish.

After a first pass on the San Fermo della Battaglia and at the finish in Como, one last lap awaits with the Civiglio and again the San Fermo della Battaglia. 5 kilometers after that last slope we know the winner.

The Muro di Sormano, where Remco Evenepoel crashed heavily in 2020, ignores the organization.

The field of participants of the last WorldTour race has yet to be filled in, but a lot of stars such as Tadej Pogacar, Jonas Vingegaard and Julian Alaphilippe will want to shine one last time.

That certainly applies to Alejandro Valverde and Vincenzo Nibali, who are riding the last race of their career between Bergamo and Como.
