Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) admitted that he took the wrong decisions in a tense finale in Milan-San Remo that saw Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) attack and win when breaking away from the descent of the Poggio.

Stuyven held off a final chase from a group of favourites with Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal) finishing second once more and Van Aert completing the podium.
