MILANO-SANREMO’21: Stunning Stuyven!

Race Report: Milano-Sanremo is dynamite with a very long fuse, but when it explodes, stand back for action. As is usual, the Poggio is where the race blew up to give us a group of worthy front runners for the swoop into Sanremo. But it was Trek-Segafredo’s Jasper Stuyven who took everyone by surprise for the big win.

Win for Stuyven, 3rd for Van Aert

Jasper Stuyven won Milano-San Remo on a cold, but sunny Saturday afternoon. The Trek-Segafredo rider attacked 3 kilometres from the finish and narrowly held off the favourites in the final kilometre. Caleb Ewan was second and last year’s winner, Wout van Aert took third.

It’s a long way to Sanremo
