2014 Milan Sanremo
The 105th 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.
Milan-San Remo organisers RCS Sport who also run the Giro d'Italia have changed the last part of this mega-long one day classic cycling event. There is the addition of the Pompeiana climb in between the famous Cipressa and Poggio.
Last year the race was won by Gerald Ciolek. Freak winter weather moved across Northern Italy and there was snow on the Turchino Pass. The race organisers decided to stop the race and re-start along the coast. Some of the route was taken out on the day.
With the new route, the sprinters will have longer to recover between the Turchino at 160.6 kilometres remaining and a rapid series of 6 smaller climbs before the end of the race under the prestigious finish arc of the Lungomare Italo Calvino.
Update: It has been recently decided not to include the climbs of the Pompeiana and Manie in the 2014 edition.
Amateurs can ride the Milan Sanremo during the official Gran Fondo Milan Sanremo which take place on Sunday 8 June. If you would like to ride this classic race in nice weather in June 2014 (hopefully), have a look at our travel package here
