Milan-Sanremo 2022 favorites - Men
The decision making factor at MSR is whether sprinters can get over the last big climb as part of the main group. If the sprinters make it, the outcome will likely be decided by a field sprint. If the spinters don't make it over the last climb with the field, the race is more wide open with breakaways possible. WVA won the 2020 edition over Alaphilippe in this fashion, for example.
The heavy-hitters are all on the start list - Wout van Aert, Julian Alaphilippe, Caleb Ewan, Tadej Pogačar, and Primož Roglič. Roglič is fresh off a Paris-Nice win, while Pogačar just took Tirreno Adriatico. It's a race many different styles of rider can win, as sprinters, climbers, breakways artists (even talented descenders willing to take risks) all have a shot.
