The 2017 edition of Milan-San Remo will be raced this Saturday and “La classica di Primavera” (“The Spring Classic”) is shaping up to be quite the spectacle. The 291km race is the first of the season’s five Monuments, and while it’s normally a race for the sprinters, a couple of climbs near the end always have the potential to make things interesting.
Will the 2017 edition be decided in a reduced bunch sprint, as it so often is? Or will we see a lone rider get away in the closing kilometres to take a rare solo victory? Either way, it’s sure to be a fascinating race with so many strong contenders lining up in Milan.
