Normally, the finale of Milano-Torino is marked by the Superga. No sprinter survives that 4.9 kilometres climb at 9.1%. Last year, Michael Woods triumphed near the Basilica of Superga to succeed Thibaut Pinot.
Given the sprint-friendly character of the re-vamped race, this year’s winner is likely to be a fast finisher. The riders begin their journey in Mesero, east of Milan, to traverse the Po Valley. Apart from an undulating section halfway the route is as flat as can be.
The finish is located in Stupinigi, just south of Torino. The village hosted the Gran Piemonte in 2018 and Sonny Colbrelli sprinted to victory. The finish is located in front of the former royal hunting lodge of the Savoy family, the enormous Palazzina di caccia di Stupinigi.
The new route is a direct result of the new place on the calendar. In recent years Milano-Torino was held before the Tour of Lombardy, but this time Milan-San Remo is played out three days later. In a sense it is a return to the past. Until 1987 Milano-Torino took place in March, which made it an important preparation race for La Primavera.
Milano-Torino is expected to finish around 18.25 local time (CET).
