He left his split kilometres from the summit in the 243km race to the banks of Lake Como, before a bunch a Espana winner Primoz Roglic.
I wasnt the favourite so possibly the other cyclists underestimated me a little, said the Dutchman, who won a stage of the Tour de France at 2017, and the San Sebastian classic in 2016.
I discovered the perfect moment to strike. I went total gas. It is unreal.
In his 11th try at a classic, Mollema had built a lead of 40 seconds at the foot of San Fermo della Battaglia, the final climb eight kilometres from the lineup, and held off late attacks from the Roglic and Valverde to provide his team their 10th victory of the season.
