This year’s Milan-San Remo will start inside the Vigorelli velodrome and return to the traditional route over the mid-race Turchino climb, before the thrilling ascents of the Cipressa and Poggio reveal the contenders to win on the Via Roma.

The 113th edition of Milan-San Remo will be raced on Saturday March 20, with an official distance of 293km. However the long neutralised ride out of the centre of Milan always means riders spend over 300km and close to seven hours in the saddle.
Last year, Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) won on the Via Roma with a late attack coming off the Poggio. He held off the sprinters and left Caleb Ewan and Wout van Aert to fill the lower spots on the podium.
