Saturday March 18th: Abbaiategrasso-Sanremo (294 km)

Milan-Sanremo 2023 starts in Abbaiategrasso (?!) and finishes 294 kilometers later in Sanremo. Already a unique edition, because the start is not in Milan for the first time. But that is also the biggest change in the course. For the rest, the fixed Italian recipe: long run-up, 3 Capos, Cipressa, Poggio and finish on Via Roma.

Milaan-Sanremo 2023 – Prediction

According to the prediction, Belgian rider Wout van Aert is the top favorite to win with a 16.2% chance of victory. Van Aert is a multi-discipline cyclist who has shown his strength in various types of races, including time trials, cyclocross, and road races. He finished eight in Milan-Sanremo 2022 and will be eager to improve on that result this year and repeat his win of 2020.

Mathieu van der Poel of the Netherlands is another strong contender with a 9.3% chance of victory. He finished third in Milan-Sanremo 2022 and has a strong sprint that could be an advantage in the final kilometers.

Mads Pedersen of Denmark is also among the top favorites with an 8.9% chance of victory. He finished sixth in Milan-Sanremo 2022 and will be eager to climb higher on the result sheet, with the form he has shown already in 2023.

Tadej Pogacar of Slovenia, is another rider to watch out for with an 8.4% chance of victory. Pogacar demonstrated good form lately and will be looking to improve on his fifth place of last year.

In conclusion, Milan-Sanremo 2023 promises to be an exciting race with some of the world's top cyclists competing for the win. Wout van Aert, Mathieu van der Poel, Mads Pedersen, and Tadej Pogacar are among the top favorites, and Biniam Girmay, Arnaud De Lie or Jasper Philipsen even could also challenge for the win in a sprint out of a reduced group. Or it could be that the winner will be a late attacker like Matej Mohoric or Jasper Stuyven did in previous years. Whatever the outcome, hopefully we will get a great finally to watch.
