How to stream Milan–San Remo 2021

The 2021 edition of Milan-San Remo is March 20, 2021. As the weeklong stage races Tirreno–Adriatico and Paris-Nice come to their conclusion, thoughts turn to preparation for Milan-San Remo, the first of the cycling monuments each season.

Milan–San Remo is the longest one-day event in professional bike racing, at almost 300 kilometers (about 185 miles!) Imagine riding nearly a double century at the race pace maintained by pros. It's one of the most difficult and challenging one-day races on the calendar and can only be won by a true hard man rider.

History of Milan–San Remo

The 2020 edition of Milan-San Remo was scheduled for March 21, 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic; the re-scheduled event later took place in August 2020 as part of the compressed 2020 road season.

2020 will be remembered for its two-up sprint, in which Wout van Aert beat Julian Alaphilippe by a whisker.

Eddy Merckx won this one a whopping seven times across his massive career.

2021 Milan-San Remo preview and predictions

The top two finishers from 2020, Wout van Aert and Julian Alaphilippe, traded blows at the 2021 Tirreno–Adriatico, the final tune-up before Milan-San Remo. They'll certainly be favorites for the 2021 edition of Milan-San Remo.

Joining them is Mathieu van der Poel, who won two stages at the 2021 Tirreno–Adriatico himself. One of those stages was won in a 50km breakaway in which a cold, hungry van der Poel emptied the tank to stay away from a rapidly-closing Tadej Pogačar in the final meters. Milan-San Remo may reveal if he "went too deep" or can recover and recuperate in time to be a factor.

Other contenders include classics specialists like Greg van Avermaet and Peter Sagan, who continues his comeback attempting after contracting COVID-19.
