A guide to watching the first Monument of the season, Milan-San Remo

Milan-San Remo is the first Monument of the season and called 'La Classica Primavera' (The Spring Classic) due to its early positioning in the cycling calendar.

This year's edition will be 112th, be 299km in length and take place on Saturday 20th March, returning to its usual spring date after the 2020 edition was postponed to August due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Last year's edition was won by Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) who took the first Monument victory of his career after outsprinting defending champion Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-QuickStep) on the Via Roma. Australian Michael Matthews (Team Sunweb) finished third.

There is also a stacked peloton of contenders set to take the line. Of note include the superhuman Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix), defending champion Van Aert, 2019 winner Alaphilippe, the man looking for his fifth and final Monument, Philippe Gilbert (Lotto-Soudal) and electric sprint trio Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal), Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates) and Sam Bennett (Deceuninck-QuickStep).
