All or Nothing

Bold moves pay off for Trek-Segafredo in Italy

A single decision can be the difference between victory and 50th place in the chaotic finale of Milano-Sanremo, the first Monument of the season. Descending the Poggio in a group of 11 riders, Trek-Segafredo’s Jasper Stuyven knew his chances were slim in a sprint and decided to gamble on an attack 2.5 kilometers from the finish line. Catching the favorites by surprise, Stuyven was able to get a gap, drive hard through the final bends and take the biggest win of his career.

“I just knew I had to try, all or nothing. I prefer to do this than gamble for the sprint and finish in 5th or 10th place, so I prefer to go all-in. Most of the time it’s nothing, sometimes it’s all, and today it was all. It’s incredible,” said Stuyven.

The next day at Trofeo Alfredo Binda, the Trek-Segafredo women used their incredible team depth to perfection. After Audrey Cordon-Ragot, Ruth Winder and Tayler Wiles spent the race patrolling and softening up the peloton, 2013 winner Elisa Longo Borghini put in a fearsome solo attack on the penultimate lap to take a dramatic solo victory.

“As soon as I got a little gap I was thinking about Jasper and what he said, sometimes it’s all, often nothing, and today was all. As a team we couldn’t be happier,” said Longo Borghini. Two days, two huge WorldTour wins for a squad that is firing on all cylinders.
