Mara Victory after Piemontesi's Relegation

The 26th edition of the Giro di Lombardia was on October 26, 1930.

A 20 rider peloton came into the finish in Milan to contest the sprint. Domenico Piemontesi won the eventful sprint and finished first, but was relegated to 4th place for grabbing Antonio Negrini's shoulder in the sprint. Milan-San Remo 1930 winner Michele Mara sprinted in ahead of Campionissimo Alfredo Binda and Learco Guerro for the 1930 Giro di Lombardia victory.

SPECIAL NOTE: Following Costante Girardengo in 1921, Michele Mara's 1930 Giro di Lombardia victory earned the Italian a very difficult Milan-San Remo (early season) / Lombardia (late season) double victory in the same year.
