Milan-San Remo will return to its classic finish on the Via Roma for the first time since 2007, organisers RCS Sport confirmed on Friday.

The Via Roma has been used between 1949 to 1985 and 1994 to 2007, only switching with the races' original finish on the Corsa Cavallotti until race organisers moved the line to Piazzale Italo Calvino seven years ago.
