Usually Milan-San Remo ends with a sprint of a decimated peloton. The last time a rider arrived solo was when Fabian Cancellara performed a master piece to finish 4 seconds ahead of the troops.
Milan-San Remo has thrown up more than its fair share of surprises in recent years, still, sprinters who are in the mix at the top of the Poggio are the ones who are the likely victors. Or will we see a Cancellara-like scenario from the likes of Greg Van Avermaet or Tony Gallopin?
Title holder John Degenkolb will not compete as he is recovering from a severe January-crash.
Riders on 2016’s start list who do know how it feels to win La Primavera are Fabian Cancellara (2008), Mark Cavendish (2009) and Alexander Kristoff (2014).
