San Remo 2011 finale remains same as when Cav won it

Mark Cavendish Milan San Remo 2009

Mark Cavendish will feel at home when arriving in San Remo for the conclusion of the Milan-San Remo one-day classic in one month, on March 19. The finish remains the same as last year and when Britain's Cavendish won it in 2009, on the seafront.

Over the winter, there were reports the organiser RCS Sport would take the race back to its traditional finish on Via Roma. The organiser, however, published the route, which is the same as the last three years. It covers 298 kilometres from fashion capital Milan to the Ligurian seaside town of San Remo.
