Forty Italians in the race, among them Filippo Ganna who has great ambitions, although the "classic" is not really congenial to the characteristics of the record holder of the hour and pistard verbanese.
The official startlist of the 114th edition sees Mohoric, outgoing winner, with the number 1, then attention to Van Aert, winner in 2020 (131), Van der Poel (21), French Alaphilippe, the Slovenian Tadej Pogacar, for many the favorite of this year and the Dutch Jakobsen.
Departure at 10 am from Abbiategrasso, not the Lombard capital, and then arrive in Sanremo around 17 pm after 294 kilometers.
From Abbiategrasso the race touches Pavia, Ovada and, after passing the Passo del Turchino, enters Liguria touching most of the west: Varazze, Savona, Albenga, Imperia and all the coastal resorts facing the three famous capes, Capo Mele, Cervo and Berta and then attack the climb of Cipressa-Costarainera, the final ascent of the Poggio and the dive on the arrival of Via Roma in Sanremo.
