The Dutch eyes are of course mainly focused on Mathieu van der Poel , who makes his debut in 'La Primavera'. He had a hard time with the heat last week during the Strade Bianche, is he better with it today? If he wins, he will be the first Dutch winner since Hennie Kuiper in 1985.

Wout van Aert is perhaps the top favorite for today because of his top form. The Belgian from Jumbo-Visma made a big impression last week with his victory in the Strade Bianche. A few days later he confirmed his good form with a third place finish in Milan-Turin.

Just to refresh the memory: last year's edition, already a year and a half ago, was won by Julian Alaphillipe . He beat Oliver Naesen, Michal Kwiatkowski and Peter Sagan in the sprint. Of course, the Frenchman is also one of the favorites today.

Milan-San Remo was supposed to take place on March 21st, but we all know why that didn't happen then. The 'catch-up edition' has also been given a completely different course. Because many Italian municipalities did not like the passage of a platoon, the route has been properly diverted. The start is in Milan, but then the riders will ride more than 260 kilometers on 'unknown' terrain. Only the last forty kilometers are the same. The well-known climbs over the Cipressa and the Poggio are therefore 'normal'.
