Race organiser explains San Remo and Lombardy date changes

Tour of Lombardy 2010

Italian one-day classics Milan-San Remo and Il Lombardia (Tour of Lombardy) have shifted from a Saturday to a Sunday next season due to reasons of road safety, television coverage and the potential for accompanying public rides, organiser RCS Sport said in a statement.

On Wednesday, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) issued a statement confirming that the two WorldTour races were to shift dates, although no immediate reason was given for the move by the organisation.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, 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, CyclingWeekly.com 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.
