2018 Granfondo Sanremo-Sanremo “La Classicissima” Revealed
Milan - San Remo, the professionals will compete on the roads of the Spring Classic on Saturday, March 17, 2018. You, too, can live the magic of world class cycling, crossing the Poggio di San Remo finish line, just like all the great champions!!
Biking the curves of the Poggio, that only hours before have seen the professionals of the Milan – San Remo pass by, is a special thrill that only a few people get to experience. It’s all about who will take part in the Granfondo San Remo – San Remo “La Classicissima” on Sunday March 18, 2018
A magical event that will return again this year, with two routes designed to offer this sporting opportunity to an ever greater number of cycling enthusiasts.
The long course unfolds over a distance of 115 km for a total altitude of 1,850 meters. Shorter, but challenging all the same, the medium course covers 80 km with an altitude of 1,000 meters.
The combined Start has been set for 9:00am in San Remo in the Piazzale Cesare Battisti square, from where it will proceed along the Aurelia State Highway to Bordighera, before reaching Camporosso and the entrance to Val Nervia. At this point the road becomes steeper, carrying the participants on to Bajardo, where it once again descends towards Arma di Taggia through the Valle Argentina valley.
At this point the two routes split up, with the participants of the Mediofondo turning west towards the Poggio crossroads, with the finish line placed at the top of the climb.
However for those who are taking part in the long route, the trail follows along the Aurelia for a few kilometers until it reaches San Lorenzo al Mare where, after a turn to the left, it approaches the Cipressa (the other famous climb of the Milan – San Remo). Once it arrives at the coast, the cyclists must face another ascent that will take them to Pompeiana. Returning to Arma di Taggia, all that’s left is the last challenge of the legendary Poggio.
So all the ingredients are there for an unforgetable experience as you test yourself on the roads of the Classicissima. All this after applauding the arrival of the professionals the preceding day! Therefore a weekend of amazing events for anyone who is passionate about cycling or sport.
