Milan-San Remo

It's the world's longest one-day bike race, nearly 300 kilometers (about 7 hours in the saddle) from Milano in North Central Italy to San Remo on the Mediterranean coast near Monaco. It's a hard race for tough cyclists. Who will win? If it doesn't come down to a sprint, I'd put my money on Fabian Cancellara, who looks to have recovered his early form of two years ago. Tom Boonen has also shown better form this Spring and could be in the running. Or, how about an aggressive younger rider, like Johnny Hoogerland? If it comes down to a bunch sprint, look for Mark Cavendish and Ale Jet to duke it out. Here's the route map and the profile:
