Milano-Sanremo will end on Lungomare Italo Calvino again this Saturday instead of the traditional Via Roma used in past years. Organisers switched the arrival in 2008 due to resistance from local shop merchants on Easter weekend.
The 298-kilometre Classic ends along the Ligurian coast. As normal, the race will descend the Poggio after 291.8 kilometres to head west to Sanremo.
The sprint trains will align on Corso Cavallotti. A sharp left and right, puts the riders on Corso Raimondo and in view of the red triangle of the last kilometre.
Instead of Via Roma, riders will head straight on Corso Nino Bixio. There is a left at -500 metres and then a long sweeping right turn to start the final 300 metres on Lungomare Italo Calvino.
