Peter Sagan at the sign-on – The win on his mind?

The 2019 Milan-Sanremo followed the usual formula – Long break, peloton chase and attacks on the Cipressa and Poggio. But there is so much more to this race. The finalé could have been a World championships where the best riders come to the fore for the battle climax.

Elia Viviani and Matteo Trentin – An Italian win?

Deceuninck – Quick-Step played a perfect game. The Belgian team had a man help control the break and help pull it in, then on the Poggio they kept the speed high. When they saw that their sprinter, Elia Viviani, was not going to make it over the Capi, their work was not wasted as they provided the launch-pad for Alaphilippe’s winning move.
