A week prior to Red Hook Criterium London No.3, the third Coppa Agostoni was organised by Enrico Biganzoli. The crit is one of the most known criteriums in Italy and takes place in Lissone, Monza and Brianza province in the northern part. It’s organized by #ScattoFissoCrew, and made possible with support of Cinelli. The Coppa Agostoni is also the fourth stage of Criterium Italia Championship. With some tight corners and long straights the course was both technical and fast.

Men’s A race
The Men’s A racestarted at night with lot of people spectating it, many cheerful kids, who someday, maybe will ride a fixedgear bike on the too. A solo group in the front and went into the last lap wherein Bahumer and Cykeln were fighting for the first position, it was Filippo Fortin winning it for team Bahumer with Martino Poccianti from Cykeln coming second and finally Michael Capati from team Urbe who complemented the podium.
The race was mostly controlled by Jasmine Dotti and Paola Panzeri, Jasmine was in a solo breakaway followed by Paola who was trying to get her but couldn’t get to her. Panzeri made a group with Letizia Galvani and Stefania Baldi who eventually caught Dotti. In the last lap Jasmine took the sprint and won the race followed by Paola Panzeri and Letizia who fought hard for the third place with Valentini from Brianza sq.
The entire race was controlled mostly by the guys from Criterium Italia, Brianza Sq., Luca Salvadeo and team Supernova. This race was won by both team Criterium Italia riders, Manuel Scerbo and Manuel Cucciniello followed by Matteo Manzi from Supernova.
