Cyclingnews saw Filippo Simeoni of the Naturino-Sapore di Mare team at the start of Milano-Sanremo and asked the rider from the Lazio region of Italy if he would speak about his ongoing lawsuit against six-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong. Simeoni's squad was at Milano-Sanremo as a wild card team and he was clearly focused on trying to get in an early break, but he took some time out to tell Cyclingnews, "As far as I know, everything in this case is still going forward. My lawyers tell me that some progress can be expected soon, so the case might be in court shortly."

Less than an hour later, Simeoni had infiltrated a five man escape near Pavia that turned out to be "the" break of the day, lasting over 200 km before being reabsorbed with 50 km to go.

Full results, report and lots of photos of this year's Milan-Sanremo can be found here.
