The Milan San Remo pro race is THE monumental classic one day race in the whole of the professional calendar. The race is organised by the the Italian race organisers RCS, owners of sports newspaper Gazetta dello Sport, the same people who organize the Giro d’Italia. This Spring Classic covers 299km from Milan, south to the coast, and then almost to the French Border to the Italian Riviera and the city of Sanremo.
Always held at the beginning of the year, it is a true "classic" event, with most of the world's major cycling heroes having won it, at some point.
The 2015 race returned to the traditional route of the Milan − San Remo, which had not been used since an extra climb had been added in the 2008 race. The removal of the La Manie climb was seen as making the race more suitable for sprinters. The race started in the city of Milan, travelling to the Mediterranean and then south along the coast. The final part of the race was the most difficult, with five climbs in the last 55 kilometres (34 mi), before the race ended in the city of Sanremo for a distance of 293 kilometres (182.1 miles).
Amateurs can ride the Milan Sanremo during the official Gran Fondo Milan Sanremo in the first week of June. If you would like to ride this classic race in nice weather in April 2016 (hopefully), have a look at our travel package here (coming soon)
