This Saturday is Milan-San Remo, “The Spring Classic.” It’s wicked-long at 298 km and represents the first Monument of the Classics season. At the World Tour level, this is the equivalent of the Rose Bowl. Yeah, it’s a big deal and for Peter Sagan, the demands of the Tinkoff Team and the weight of wearing the rainbow jersey are palpable.
Sagan is a master on the bike and after 4 top 10 finishes the past four years, he’s looking to break out of his string of seemingly endless 2nd place finishes by winning the granddaddy of the classics. The course is not terribly technical or punchy, but at those distances, the legs get plenty tired and once the finish line is in view, only the strong can sprint to the line. Will it be Sagan?
