Countdown to the new edition of the Granfondo Milan – San Remo Cicloturistica, the best known Italian cicloturistica which was founded in 1970 on the initiative of the Cicloturistica Union of San Remo.
From 1st October it is in fact possible to carry out registration online on the official website for the event, which has been completely renovated for the occasion: www.milano-sanremo.org.
The 44th edition of the Granfondo Milano – San Remo Cicloturistica, scheduled for 8 June 2014, will largely follow the same route followed by the great champions in the professional competition, as is customary – for 298 km across Lombardy, Piedmont and Liguria, leaving from the municipality of Assago and arriving in Corso Garibaldi in San Remo.
A record number of participants registered for the last edition: over 1100 cyclists took part in the longest running cicloturistica in the Italian calendar, with a massive presence of participants from all of Europe and even from overseas, with cyclists arriving for the occasion from Brazil, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and also Malaysia.
The numbers showed an increase of 30% in comparison to the 2012 edition, reflecting the great promotional work that was undertaken by the combination of the organizations of UC Sanremo and Nyala Wonder Travel, who are hoping to repeat their success in 2014.
