Milano - Sanremo - Race Overview

Two-time Paris-Nice stage winner Michael Matthews narrowly missed out on the opportunity to contest the sprint at Milan-San Remo today after a crash in the last 30kilometres of the race left him chasing heroically back onto the peloton.

As the race approached the Cipressa climb a large group of riders went down at the front of the peloton, effectively ending the race for Matthews and ORICA-GreenEDGE. The race was eventually won by Arnaud Demare (FDJ)

”Obviously I’m devastated,” said Matthews at the finish. ”I was in the wrong place at the wrong time, the team rode really well all day and everything was going perfectly.”
