Milano-Torino takes place today, Wednesday, with a changed identity. Usually a trophy-hunting affair for the puncheurs, this year it's a prime sprint opportunity for Milan-San Remo hopefuls, and all the big-name fast-men will be on the start-line this morning.

From Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal), to Mathieu van der Poel (opens in new tab) (Fenix-Alpecin) and Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma), the field will be top-notch, and the grand finale well worth a watch.

Cyclingnews will be bringing you live coverage, reports, results, photos and news for the race. Read on to find out how to watch Milano-Torino via live stream, no matter your location, with ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).

Normally, Milano-Torino falls in the late season as riders are winding down after a long year of racing, but with a five-month break in competition because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be a very different race in 2020.

Not only is the course flattened out, but the field is stacked with all of the sprinters itching to notch up a win – just in case the spread of the virus stops racing again – and warm up their legs for the weekend's Monument, Milan-San Remo.

The 1.Pro-ranked race has attracted 14 WorldTour teams this season, with eight ProTeams rounding out a 22-squad start list. The change of course sees EF Pro Cycling take a pass, as last year's winner Michael Woods gears up for a run at the Tour de France.

At 198km in length, the race will be a good test of endurance without sapping too much from riders' legs ahead of Milan-San Remo, and all the big names are due to be in attendance: Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), still looking for his first win of the season, Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix), aiming to make up for an untimely puncture that spoiled Strade Bianche for him, Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) – the winner of Strade Bianche – and Vuelta a Burgos stage winner Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates).

Sam Bennett (Deceuninck-Quickstep) is another favorite after a fine uphill stage win in Burgos, as is Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) after two second places in the Spanish stage race.

It will be the first race back for Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal), who notched up three wins in the pre-COVID part of the season, while Trek-Segafredo's young phenom Matteo Moschetti is aiming to reconfirm his two victories in Mallorca in January, having rehabilitated a fractured pelvis, scapula and vertebra suffered in February.

With hardly an autostrade overpass to slow the peloton, it should be a wickedly fast trip from Mesero to Stupinigi and a great test for the sprinters' lead-out men.

Read on for all the details of how to watch them in action at Milano-Torino on Wednesday.
