The 111th edition of Milan-San Remo will take place on Saturday March 21, 2020. The Italian one-day race signals the start of the Spring Classics campaign and is the first of the five prestigious 'Monuments' on the calendar. 

Known as La Classicissima di Primavera - and also simply 'La Classicissima' or 'La Primavera' - the race has come to symbolise the turning of winter to spring. The race starts out in Milan in the north and the metaphorical turning point comes at the top of the Passo del Turchino, after which the riders descend to the Ligurian coast and head along to San Remo. 

The longest race of the year, at nearly 300km, Milan-San Remo is characterised by the late ascent of the Poggio and the subsequent drop down to the finishing straight, setting up a battle between the attacking puncheurs and the sprinters in a dramatic climax that often justifies the relative inaction of the previous six hours. 

The 2019 Milan-San Remo was won by Julian Alaphilippe, who attacked on the Poggio to draw a select group of 10 riders clear before picking them off in the sprint.
