Van der Hoorn, Planet, Norsgaard, Conci, Peron, Tagliani, Viel and Tonelli carve out a lead of more than 7 minutes before the peloton takes control.
After the three Capi the lead group has been halved to Tonelli, Van der Hoorn, Norsgaard and Conci. The four tackle the Cipressa with a lead of 22 seconds. Van der Hoorn is the last rider to be reeled in on the climb.
An Alaphilippe attack on the Poggio is neutralized before twelve riders reach the summit together. Ewan is still in the mix and the group flies down the Poggio. Just before reaching San Remo Stuyven strikes and Kragh Andersen comes across in the city. The two work together and Stuyven plays it cool. The Belgian kicks again in the final 100 metres to hold off the chasers and win. Ewan sprints to second place ahead of last year’s winner Van Aert.
