Bauke Mollema ensured the biggest victory of his career when he won the Tour of Lombardy one-day race, the very last of the years fiveMonument classics.
The riders assaulted 20km from the finish and completed 16 seconds clear.
Tour de France champion Egan Bernal, 10 years younger than Mollema, was third.
Mollema is the first since Hennie Kuiper at 1981 and also the next winner of this coveted race.
He left his split kilometres from the summit in the 243km race to the banks of Lake Como, ahead of a group comprising Valverde Bernal and Vuelta a Espana winner Primoz Roglic in Bergamo.
I was not the favorite so possibly the other cyclists underestimated me a bit, said the Dutchman, who won a stage of the Tour de France in 2017, and the San Sebastian classic in 2016.
I discovered the ideal moment to strike. I went total gas. It is unreal.
In his 11th effort at a classic, Mollema had built a lead of 40 seconds at the foot of San Fermo della Battaglia, the last scale eight kilometres from the line, and held off late strikes from both Roglic and Valverde to provide his team his 10th success of the season.
39, spaniard Valverde, listed his third second-place end from the race.
