Along the way we will face the three climbs of Milan-SanRemo, in the final stages where the race reaches the critical point of the 300km route. The race was first held in 1907 and the Spring Classic is heralded as one of the “Monuments” of cycling. Starting from the aTUTTA! Clubhouse we will ride towards Imperia to face Capo Berta. Sweet and short, this climb will take us back to SanRemo where we will turn towards Cipressa. Here we will challenge the famous 5.6 km climb at 4.1% slope and the very technical descent that will take us back to the Via Aurelia. Finally the Poggio, the stretch that most of all represents the Milan-SanRemo, with its 3.7 km in length and 4% of average gradient with peaks up to 8% in the section that crosses the hill; this is where the final attacks are made and often the race is decided just 5km from the finish line.

The final climbs on this historical route often surprise riders who expect them to be harder than they are. But don’t be fooled by the shallow gradients – after racing for 250km and climbing at speeds over 30km these challenges are enough to determine who will be the rider to cross the line first.
