Milan-San Remo 2011: Who will win?

Oscar Freire wins, Milan-San Remo 2010

Milan-San Remo is a war of attrition. Despite there being just under 300km of racing, there are very few genuine places for an attack to stick - the pace is kept so high throughout the race that it takes a very special rider with good form to break free.

The lack of opportunity for escapees to release themselves from the grip of their opponents is what often keeps the race together for a bunch sprint. Seven out of the last 10 editions of the race have concluded with a bunch gallop.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
