CSC Team O’Grady & SASI Scholarship holder Christos Winter is set to ride in the junior version of the Milan San Remo on the 24th of March. Winter will ride for cycling team Vigili Del Fuoco under the guidance of coach Pierluiggi Terrinoni.

The 63rd running of the 110km “Sulle Strade della Sanremo” will be a great battle, with world junior road champion Diego Ullisi and Italian junior champion Alfredo Balloni both looking to win on the famed Via Roma, just hours before the professional riders come in.

A member of Stuart O’Grady’s development team, Winter hopes to follow in his idol’s footsteps. “Stuey has always performed really well in this race and I’d like to follow his footsteps. Hopefully I can get over the Cipressa & Poggio in good position and we’ll see how I go from there”

17 year old Winter will race in Italy for four weeks in preparation for the world championship selection races in Australia at the end of April. Although not confirmed yet, the team may also get a start in the junior Paris-Roubaix, also just hours before the pro race.
