The route

The 112th edition of the Milano-Sanremo presented by Eolo will follow the classic race route with the exception of the climb of Passo del Turchino – not ridden this year due to a landslide. The race will instead pass via the Colle di Giovo climb to then descend on the Aurelia to Albisola and follow the final 112km that make the race iconic, with the passage over the three Capi before Cipressa and Poggio. Thanks to close collaboration with the Municipality of Sanremo, the local authorities, and the shops owner of Via Roma, who will close their shops from 2.30pm to avoid gatherings, the Classicissima will be able to use its historic finish line on Via Roma.
