Albasini was part of a six-man breakaway at the end of the race and just managed to get the victory ahead of Giovanni Visconti (Farnese Vini-Neri Sottoli) and Stefan Schumacher (Miche).

Julien Antomarch (VC La Pomme), Julien Loubet (AG2R) and Davide Rebellin (Miche) were also in the mix at the end.

Albasini, who won last year's Tour of Britain, has been in decent form this year.

He finished fourth overall in the Tour of Oman, took a stage at the Bayern Rundfahrt, and won the mountains competition at the Tour of the Basque Country.
