Milano-San Remo · 26 minutes ago

15 km to go - Bonifazio's attack has given him a 15-second lead. His mission does not seem likely to succeed.

Milano-San Remo · 27 minutes ago

Another 17 km - Niccolò Bonifazio attacks in the descent. The Italian drives away with great risk on his own. Groenewegen seems to have survived the climb and is sitting in the back of the pack.

Milano-San Remo · 34 minutes ago

Another 22 km - Groenewegen has difficulty following the climb. The Dutchman hangs in the back of the pack.

Milano-San Remo · 39 minutes ago

25 km to go - Everyone rides together again! Masnada is doing everything it can to stay ahead of the pack, but that attempt is hopeless.

Milano-San Remo · one hour ago

Another 30 km - We get the Cipressa, a 5.5 kilometer long climb with an average gradient of 4.1 percent. It will be interesting to see how the sprinters are doing. Masnada is still in the lead alone.

Milano-San Remo · one hour ago

38 km to go - Movement in the leading group! Schönberger places an attack and gets company from the Italian Fausto Masnada, who then runs away on his own. His lead over the peloton is more than a minute.

Milano-San Remo · one hour ago

40 km to go - In this little uplifting 'La Primavera' we slowly go to the denouement. The lead group's lead is only a minute and a half. It does not seem to be long before the refugees are caught.

Milano-San Remo · one hour ago

60 km to go - The peloton increases the pressure on the front runners while enjoying the sun. The lead of the first ten, which was once ten minutes, is now less than three minutes.

Milano-San Remo · 2 hours ago

Another 75 km - It is almost finished with the completely flat roads. The riders are approaching the Capo Mele, Capo Cervo and Capo Berta. It doesn't mean much; the most challenging climb is the Capo Berta with a gradient of up to 4.1 percent. The sprinters are only really tested in the final phase.

Milano-San Remo · 2 hours ago

84 km to go - Under the leadership of the sprinter teams, the pace in the peloton increases and the lead of the leading group shrinks. The ten refugees still have a margin of more than four minutes.

Still 106 km - We are again in a flat part of the race and so it is mainly the environment that stands out. The lead of the ten front runners is still just over five minutes.

Milano-San Remo · 3 hours ago

Still 136 km - Tom Dumoulin has to do the rest of the race with a teammate less. The Dane Casper Pedersen gets off and the rider from Team Sunweb is the second drop in this Milan-San Remo.

Milano-San Remo · 3 hours ago

Milano-San Remo · 4 hours ago

173 km to go - The leading group is approaching the foot of the Turchino, a climb of no less than 25 km. Incidentally, the increase percentages do not exceed two percent, so this obstacle should not be a problem.

Milano-San Remo · 4 hours ago

Another 186 km - The first dropout in the race is a fact. The dubious honor goes to the Belgian Nathan Van Hooydonck, teammate of Greg Van Avermaet at CCC. Van Hooydonck suffers too much from stomach problems that have been troubling him for several days. The lead of the leading group has since fallen somewhat to more than 7.5 minutes.

Milano-San Remo · 5 hours ago

206 km to go - On the flat Italian roads the riders have enough time to enjoy the beautiful landscape, such as here in Tortona.

Milano-San Remo · 5 hours ago

Still 210 km - The image is fairly monotonous in 'La Primavera'. We have a leading group of ten that is still slightly more than eight minutes ahead of the pack. For the necessary excitement, wait until the first climb, which is 140 kilometers from the finish.

Milano-San Remo · 5 hours ago

Still 237 km - A striking fact of the Novo Nordisk cycling team, which has no fewer than four riders in the top group of ten. The American formation drives races with the aim of calling attention to diabetes. The four refugees from Novo Nordisk all have diabetes.

Milano-San Remo · 6 hours ago

Julian Alaphilippe is one of the favorites for the victory in Italy. The Frenchman of Deceuninck-Quick-Step already booked day victories in the Tour of San Juan (two), the Tour of Colombia (one) and the Tirreno-Adriatico (two) and he won the Strade Bianche.
