The 111th edition of Milan-San Remo will be held on Saturday 21 March. 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’s La Primavera came down to a sprint of an elite group with Julian Alaphilippe, Peter Sagan, Vincenzo Nibali, Tom Dumoulin, Alejandro Valverde, Oliver Naesen and Michal Kwiatkowski. Alaphilippe took the spoils ahead of these last two riders.
