Marta Cavalli is one of Italy's most exciting rising talent on the Women's WorldTour and she has long dreamt of winning a women's version of Milan-San Remo. The FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope rider said she has spent many training camps in the San Remo area and has a special place in her heart for the Poggio.

"It would be great to skip the first part [of the men's race route from Milan] and start in Genoa along the coast. It could be an awesome race. I love San Remo and I've spent a lot of timing training there," Cavalli told Cyclingnews.
