World champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) instigated the winning move and led into the finishing straight at Milan-San Remo, but fell short of the win, ruing the lack of cooperation from other leading riders.

Sagan led down hairpins and on the seaside road to the sprint. He looked at his two companions, but only Julian Alaphilippe (Quick-Step Floors) would contribute to the pace-setting while Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky) watched and waited for the kill, eventually taking a narrow victory.
