Milan San Remo and Trofeo Alfredo Binda

OTR League

This weekend we have both a Mens and Femmes event.

Saturday sees the 112th edition of Milan-San Remo.  As usual La Primavera the first Monument of the season is the longest Classic and rolls around 299 kilometres. Will we see the Cipressa-Poggio combination determine the final outcome before the downhill into San Remo or will we have a small bunch sprint to the finish?  Your guess is (at least) as good as mine!

Last year was a 2 up sprint between van Aert and Alaphilippe with the honours going to van Aert.  With both in good form and adding van der Poel to the pot plus a strong contingent of sprinters it could be a cracker.

Sunday sees the Trofeo Alfredo Binda for the Femmes.  The race is back after being cancelled last year due to the COVID outbreak. The route is a hilly 130 kilometres with a 17.8-kilometre circuit finish around the town of Cittiglio.  Whilst each lap climbs through Orino the finish is on an open road that suits a small bunch sprint to the finish – maybe!

Marianne Vos was the 2019 winner.

Start List can be found here.
