Ulissi, four victory in 2019 (photo Federciclismo): “It was a tough course and I’m happy I could take the win. With forty kilometers to go we had a very demanding climb and before that there was barely a metre of flat road. The Olympic race will be even tougher because the course will be longer. It has been a good trip to Japan for me, I felt good which gives me positive feelings for the second half of the season“.
