Course Description

The Turchino Pass will not be present in the route of Milan-San Remo for the first time in 94 years, due to a landslide near the locality of Fado. The 532 metre climb has been a key point throughout La Primavera's history, but the riders will have to take an alternative route this year via Bric Berton (773 m). The summit of this climb comes at 140 kilometres, approximately halfway through the 287 kilometre classic. It is followed by a small rise at kilometre 158.5 (Colle del Giovo) before descending to Varazze for the race to the finish along the Liguran coast.

The total distance has been reduced from 294 kilometres to 287, as the organisers have tried to keep as much as possible to the original Milan-San Remo parcours. Of course, the small climbs that punctuate the final 50 kilometres are still there: Capo Mele (65 m), Capo Servo (77 m), Capo Berta (130 m), Cipressa (240 m) and Poggio (162 m), setting things up for the traditional finish in San Remo.

With the extra altitude at halfway, it is possible that the race will not end in a bunch sprint as it has done for the past four years. Although the Bric Berton climb is quite a long way from the finish, its effects may be felt on the Cipressa and Il Poggio.
