Last year’s winner and current world champion Mathieu Van der Poel (Alpecin - Deceuninck) has chosen Milan-San Remo as his first race of 2024 and few would bet against him winning for the second year in a row. Whilst most of the peloton have multiple race days in their legs he has been preparing at altitude to hit the ground running and hopefully do to the field what he did in the winter cross season.

The first Monument of the cycling season runs from the centre of Milan to the coastal resort of San Remo. It’s true that nothing really happens for 282 kilometres (other than a wearing down of the riders) but when the race hits the famous Poggio, it bursts to life. Some call it boring, but it’s about the wait and then the climax – the fight to be first over the top and descend like a daredevil to the coast. 

All the talk before the start has been around whether Tadej Pogačar will attack on the Cipressa climb, with 25km to go. Will he have the power to drop everyone else this far out or will the other favourites like Mads Pedersen, Filippo Ganna and Van der Poel just stick to his wheel. Read on for all the info on where to watch Milan-San Remo online from anywhere.

Covering the British Isles, Belgium, France, Italy and Spain he has been riding and racing up hills and mountains for over 30 years now. He hosts talks, guides rides, has written columns for magazines and in 2020 released his first book of cycling routes, RIDE BRITAIN.
