Francesco Ginanni of Diquigiovanni-Androni won the 46th Trofeo Laigueglia Saturday along the waterfront in Italy's Liguria region. The Italian benefited from an escape of teammate Michele Scarponi to conquer Filippo Pozzato (Katusha) and Enrico Rossi (Ceramica Flaminia-Bossini Docce) in the sprint.

"It is a great victory, and I am happy to have crossed the line of Laigueglia ahead of some of the most talented riders," said Ginanni to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Scarponi aided Ginanni with an escape that forced the other teams to spend energy in their chase. Scarponi's move ended in the final kilometre of the 176.1-kilometre race.

Davide Rebellin, recent winner of two stages of the Vuelta a Andalucía, led-out for teammate Ginanni in the sprint of around 25 riders. The Corsa Ligure was the team's 11th win so far this season.

Ginanni captured his first win of his second year as a professional. He recently placed fourth in the GP Etruschi. Last year he won four races in total.
