“La Classicissima” at the finish line of champions

The Ligurian Granfondo of 22 March will retrace the finale of the Milan-San Remo. First with a controlled pace to Imperia, then the lighting of the powder. For those who arrive in San Remo between 1:00 pm and 1:50 pm the finish line will be in Via Roma, where the professionals will also arrive a few hours later.

6 February 2015, San Remo (Im) – The same day, the same excitement, the same finish line. The Granfondo San Remo-San Remo “la Classicissima” will be contested on Sunday 22 March, concurrently with the Milan – San Remo professional race, and the Granfondisti will be able to experience at first hand the adrenalin-charged finale to the race which will decide one of the most famous competitions in the world of cycling.

After the start from San Remo at 9.30 am, the Granfondo will head off to Imperia, at a pace that will be controlled by the race car from the start of the race. Once the Ligurian capital has been reached, the race master will lower the flag and the powder will be lit, with only the most daring participants will proving equal to the challenge.

The Cipressa and the Poggio di Sanremo will allow all the competitors to relive the thrills experienced by their sporting heros, with the fastest Granfondisti enjoying the excitement of crossing the same finish line as the professionals, in Via Roma: from 1:00 pm to 1:50 pm in fact the arrival point will be exactly the same as the one reached by the champions of the Milan – San Remo. Those who arrive in San Remo after 1:50 pm will be directed to the arrival in Corso Garibaldi.

The rankings will be decided based on the order of arrival at the finish line of San Remo, therefore not just on the basis of the time trials, as in the last edition. The event will, however, preserve the cicloturistico spirit, where even amateur competitors  can travel the same roads as the champions and marvel at the wonderful early Spring panoramas of the Ligurian Riviera.

All information on the Granfondo San Remo – San Remo “la Classicissima” is available on the classicissima.it official site.

The passion of the Milan – San Remo continues with the 45th edition of the Granfondo Milan – San Remo Cicloturistica on 26 April: www.milano-sanremo.org.
