What to expect at Milan-San Remo 2023

Milan-San Remo is always a big moment in the cycling season – the long-awaited first Monument of the year.

This year’s edition of the race will be held on Saturday 18 March and some of the peloton's biggest hitters are already signed up – Wout Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma), Mathieu Van Der Poel (Alpecin-Deceuninck) and Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates), to name but three.

This year's 'Primavera' as it's known, is the longest one-day race on the calendar at 294km. While up until now it has always started from Milan, this year it begins just outside, in the town of Abbiategrasso. From there, it heads south to the Mediterranean coast before heading west to San Remo in the Liguria region. 

The riders will encounter the mid-sized climb of the Passo del Turchino mid-route, but the key phase of the race begins with around 20km to go, with the storied ascents of the Cipressa and the Poggio.

Matej Mohorič of Bahrain Victorious won last year with a daring attack on the final descent, holding on to win on the Via Roma - San Remo's famous finishing straight. He is set to defend his title this year, but could have serious competition from the likes of Van Der Poel, Van Aert and many more.
