Lloyd climbs to victory in Italy

Matthew Lloyd has climbed to victory in an elite category race in Italy to add to the South team's already successful season. The team combined perfectly to pave the way for Lloyd, 23, to hit the finish line alone in the 162km Trofeo Alcide de Gasperi, which started in Bassano del Grappa and finished in Trento

The course included several tough climbs but Lloyd made his winning move on the last of the final 3 laps of a very hilly finishing circuit in Trento. Second place went to Russian, Alezandr Filippov (Gruppo Lupi) four seconds behind Lloyd, with third going to Italian, Davide Malacarne (Zalf) at twelve seconds.

It is Lloyd's second win for the season coming after his victory on the fifth stage of last month's Tour of Japan.
