inCycle: Kristoff on how he won Milan-San Remo in 2014

Katusha sprinter analyses his biggest one-day win

On Sunday morning Alexander Kristoff will line up for the start of Milan-San Remo as the defending champion and one of the key favourites to win this year’s race.

The Norwegian came through a rain-effected edition of La Primavera in 2014, beating Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing) and Ben Swift (Team Sky) to the top step of the podium.

Having already racked up a number of wins this season, including a stage of Paris-Nice last week, Kristoff comes into the race somewhere near his best form.

And at last month’s Tour of Qatar – where he won three stages – Kristoff sat down with inCycle to take them through his 2014 win – from the early stages of the wet start to the finishing line where he tracked Philippe Gilbert before unleashing an unbeatable sprint.
