The 110th edition of Milan-San Remo will be held on Saturday, the 23rd of March 2019. The first Monument of the cycling season, aptly called La Primavera – in English, The Spring – is the longest one day race on the professional calendar. The race is played out on a route of approximately 300 kilometres with the finish mostly on the Via Rome in San Remo. The last hill is the Poggio, which is crested with 5 kilometres remaining.

Last year, Vincenzo Nibali won Milan-San Remo. The Shark of Messina launched an attack just before cresting the Poggio and held off the chasing peloton in the descent. Caleb Ewan and Arnaud Démare sprinted to second and third place.
