Filippo Pozzato wants to relive boyhood dream in Milan-San Remo

Filippo Pozzato celebrates second place in Roma Maxima

Filippo Pozzato (Lampre-Merida), 2006 victor, wants to relive a boyhood dream by winning Milan-San Remo on Sunday. He appears to have the legs with his Trofeo Laigueglia win and remains in good spirits, so anything is possible for the Italian.

"Last year, I had a broken collarbone and was coming from behind. I went well in San Remo [sixth], great in Flanders [second] and crashed in Paris-Roubaix," Pozzato said on Monday evening. "I've already won two races... Oh, wait, only one!"
