The runners will roll along a practically flat route for the first 120 kilometers before facing the first great difficulty with the climb to Passo del Turchino. After their descent, the cyclists will ride along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea for almost 100 kilometers before entering the final 50 kilometers where the race will be decided. The ascents to the levels of Capo Mele, Capo Cervo and Capo Berta will be the advances before the two decisive moments in Milan – San Remo: the Cipressa, which could break the race; and the climb and the subsequent descent to Poggio di San Remo, with its 3.7 kilometers at 3.7% and ramps of up to 8% after almost 290 kilometers in the legs, and where the winning attack could take place. In the event that a large group arrives, Milan – San Remo will be decided in a vibrant volata on the city’s Via Roma.
