Matej Mohorič won Saturday’s Milan-San Remo with a hair-raising descent off the Poggio that will live long in the memory. The Slovenian’s daring was aided by the use of a dropper post, making his victory in the Italian Monument even more remarkable.

“I've been thinking about this race all winter. The goal was to train very well in the winter on the mountains, so that I could come over the Poggio,” Mohorič said after his victory on the Via Roma. “Then I could show my descending abilities in the descent. The team had prepared a special bike for me for that.”
