BERGAMO, Italy -- Esteban Chaves became the first Colombian to win Il Lombardia in snatching victory from Diego Rosa of Italy by less than a bike wheel on Saturday. Adidas Ultra Boost Cheap Sale .Rosa looked set for a surprise victory after launching his sprint with 250 meters to go, but Chaves came from behind to claim his first Monument win, crossing the line to a huge sigh of disappointment from the Italian fans.Its unbelievable, I cant believe I won, said the Orica-BikeExchange rider, who also became the first non-European to win the race in its 110-year history. I turned pro here in Lombardy with Coldeportes, I lived in Bergamo for two years, and now I won the race. Its really special.Another Colombian, Rigoberto Uran, was third in the final classic of the season, a challenging 241-kilometer (150-mile) route from Como to Bergamo, featuring 4,400 meters of climbing. All three had the same time of 6 hours, 26 minutes, 36 seconds.Romain Bardet, who was part of the lead quartet, crossed the line fourth, six seconds slower, with the chase group more than a minute further back.Chaves attacked at the bottom of the Selvino, and was swiftly joined by Uran and Bardet.Rosa tried to drag Astana leader Fabio Aru back up to the front but the Sardinian told his teammate to go it alone and a fantastic effort saw him do just that, catching the front three at the top of the climb, with 30 kilometers remaining. And they distanced the peloton on the long, twisty descent into Bergamo.Bardet was dropped on the climb to Bergamo Alta, as was Rosa briefly, but the French rider could not make it back on. Adidas Ultra Boost Discount . Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow. That means that Marc Bartra will probably start again in the centre of the defence alongside Gerard Pique. Cheap Authentic Ultra Boost . The Hall of Fame defenceman told Landsberg that he believes fighting still has a place in todays game, but thinks staged fighting needs be outlawed. . The phone hearing is scheduled for 4:30pm et/1:30pm pt. Winchester, who was not penalized for the hit, appeared to make contact with Kellys head early in the first period of Thursdays game in Boston. CHASKA, Minn. -- His shirt soaked from spraying champagne in a rare Ryder Cup victory, Phil Mickelson already was looking ahead at how to win the next one.Not only was this a scene from Sunday at Hazeltine, it was eight years ago at Valhalla.Paul Azinger was in charge of sweeping changes for the U.S. team. He demanded a new qualifying system based on PGA Tour earnings instead of the archaic method of awarding points for top 10s. He doubled the number of captains picks to four players. He broke up his 12 players into three pods based largely on personalities.It worked so well -- a 16+-11+ victory over Europe in 2008 -- that when someone asked Azinger if hed like to do it again, Mickelson didnt give him a chance to answer.Zinger in 2010, Mickelson said that day.It didnt happen. For too many years, the PGA of America treated the Ryder Cup captaincy as a lifetime achievement award. It would be wrong to assume the Americans immediately embarked on another losing streak because of the captain. They lost in Wales because they failed to win any of the six matches in the final team session and never caught up. Thats just bad golf. It happens.Mickelson, however, picked up on something at Valhalla.Why abandon success?That was his point when he publicly criticized the authoritative style of Tom Watson during that awkward news conference at Gleneagles in 2014 after a third straight U.S. loss, its eighth dating to 1995.Mickelson wondered why the Americans got away from player input that worked so beautifully under Azinger in 2008 and worked every year in the Presidents Cup.I have been a part of 10 successful Presidents Cups and eight losing Ryder Cups, he said Sunday during the first of several celebrations. And its very easy to see what the difference is. When put in the right environment, the U.S. team brought out some of their most amazing golf. Were bringing home the Ryder Cup because of it.Love for captain in 2018?Not quite.There were snickers all week that Love wasnt even the captain. This was as much Mickelsons team, because it was Mickelson who risked his public image at Gleneagles by calling out Watson, a revered figure in golf, even though his message was aimed at the PGA of America.Tiger Woods was on that Ryder Cup Task Force geared toward getting players more invollved and had strongest influence of any of the five assistants. Adidas Ultra Boost Wholesale. Steve Stricker was another assistant captain. He will be the captain of the Presidents Cup team next year that will feature many of the same players.This is what Mickelson wanted in 2008. This is what the Americans have to do now if they want to catch up to Europe.The series now stands at 26-13-2 in favor of the United States, though that includes too many lean years when Britain was rebuilding from World War II. The modern Ryder Cup dates to 1979 when continental Europe was invited, and Europe has a 10-8-1 advantage since then.Mickelson had said the success of the task force could not be measured by results at Hazeltine. This was not about the next Ryder Cup but the next 10 of them.He knew all along that wasnt the case, which is why the pressure he faced -- not to mention the rest of the Americans -- was greater than ever.The pressure started when some dumbass opened his mouth two years ago in the media center, Mickelson said, self-deprecating in his moment of glory.The pressure doesnt go away.It was a relief to win, but the Americans havent won back to back in the Ryder Cup since 1993, the year Jordan Spieth was born.Its not about whos the next captain. It could be Mickelson, Stricker, Woods or Jim Furyk. It doesnt matter if the final captains pick is five days before the matches begin or if all four are made at the same time.What matters -- what Europe has had all these years -- is that players feel as much a part of the process as the people running the Ryder Cup.We need to build on this. Otherwise, its all for naught, Mickelson said. Yes, its great that we had success this week. But its not about one year or one Ryder Cup. Its about a multitude, for decades to come.Timing is everything, and such was the case Sunday night. Love reached for a bottle of champagne as Mickelson spoke and popped the cork. The sound made Mickelson stop, and he looked over at Love with a smile.Thats my cue to shut up, Mickelson said.It was time for an American celebration in the Ryder Cup, and one could sense the strong belief they wouldnt have to wait eight years for another one. Cheap Nike Chiefs Jerseys Chargers Jerseys China Wholesale Raiders Jerseys China Cowboys Jerseys China Cheap Giants Jerseys Hoodies Cheap Eagles Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike Redskins Jerseys Lions Jerseys China Green Bay Packers Jerseys For Sale Wholesale Vikings Jerseys China Panthers Jerseys China Saints Jerseys China Cheap Buccaneers Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Cardinals Jerseys China Cheap Nike Rams Jerseys 49ers Jerseys China Wholesale Seahawks Jerseys China Cheap Nike Bears Jerseys Bills Jerseys ChinaCheap Nike Ravens Jerseys Cheap Falcons Jerseys Hoodies ' ' '
