Italian one-day classic Milan-San Remo will change direction in 2015 with a rumoured Via Roma finish in the centre of the Ligurian seaside town on March 22.

"We are going to see a surprise," Race Director Mauro Vegni told Cycling Weekly. "It's not really so much of a surprise, but given the last 20 years, the change could been seen as a surprise return to Milan-San Remo."
