A strong and determined team for the 110th Sanremo
A year has already passed since Vincenzo Nibali’s masterpiece. His attack with 6.5km to go remains one of the most spectacular actions of the past season. Saturday the 110th edition of the “Classicissima” will be staged from Milan to Sanremo for 291km. The route is the usual one with the passage from Pavia, Ovada, Passo del Turchino and then descending towards Genoa.
From here, the route strikers west and after the classic sequence of the “Capi” (Capo Mele, Capo Cervo and Capo Berta), the bunch negotiates two climbs: the Cipressa and Poggio di Sanremo. From the top, a highly technical descent brings the riders to the finish line in Sanremo’s center.
“I am happy with the signals I received from Tirreno-Adriatico – explains Vincenzo Nibali – because they show that my condition is growing. The Sanremo is perhaps the most difficult race to interpret and this is its great charm. It will not be easy to repeat the task of last year, but I will do my best to try”.
“For me the Sanremo is one of the most loved races- dice Sonny Colbrelli – it seems easy, but it only takes a second to win it or lose it. The Paris-Nice gave me good feedback and I hope to be with the best at the end of Via Roma “.
“We have a well-balanced team – comments SD Alberto Volpi – with Vincenzo who will be our captain and two great quality riders like Sonny and Matej who will be able to take advantage of the right opportunity. The rest of the team is made up of experienced riders and for this I think we will have a good race. ”
TBM’s line-up for Milano-Sanremo: Vincenzo Nibali, Sonny Colbrelli, Kristijan Koren, Marcel Sieberg, Dylan Teuns, Matej Mohoric and Heinrich Haussler.
