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 the 112th, over a distance of 293km and taking place on Saturday 19th March. The 2021 edition saw the race returning to its usual spring date after the 2020 edition was postponed to August due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 2022 edition also sees a return to the coastal route and the Turchino after its exclusion for the past three years.

The course is over 300km in length when the 9.8km neutral roll out from Milan, which makes it the longest pro bike race on the calendar.

Last year’s edition was won by Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo), who attacked 2km from the finish, catching out Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-QuickStep), Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix), and the 2020 champion Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma).

No rider has successfully defended their win or won repeatedly since Omar Freire in 2010, whilst Eddy Merckx has won it seven times.

There is a stacked peloton of contenders set to take the line in 2022, including some of the world’s best sprinters. Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal), world champion and 2019 winner Julian Alaphilippe (QuickStep Alpha Vinyl), Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates), the Jumbo-Visma duo of Primož Roglič and Van Aert, and former world champion Philippe Gilbert (Lotto Soudal), who will be hoping to become the fourth rider to complete a historic five-Monuments sweep.
