Aleksandr Vlasov and Alexey Lutsenko are set to captain Astana-Premier Tech in Il Lombardia.

The final monument of the season is approaching with a 239-kilometre route that will be held the other way around from the recent previous editions and will have a start in Como and a finish in Bergamo. This is a difficult race that is known for the ascents that make it a one-day race for the climbers.

While this is the first time for Lutsenko in the race of the Falling Leaves, Vlasov finished in the third position in the 2020 edition of the competition.

"I have really good memories of Il Lombardia," said Vlasov. "Taking third in a Monument is something special and last year it was an incredible race. This year, we are back to the normal date, not like last year where we rode it in August. So, at least, the weather will not be as hot as last year and now, we have the route changed from Como to Bergamo.

"I am looking forward to it but the race has a really strong start list, we will see what will happen but I am motivated to give my best to reach yet another good result."

Astana's line-up for Il Lombardia (October 9):

Manuele Boaro (ITA)
Samuele Battistella (ITA)
Rodrigo Contreras (COL)
Fabio Felline (ITA)
Alexey Lutsenko (KAZ)
Matteo Sobrero (ITA)
Aleksandr Vlasov (RUS)
