Added to the Sprinters’ Classic route in 1982 (Milan-Sanremo) to make the race even more challenging.


We often hear the names together, but the Cipressa and Poggio are two different climbs both for their distinctive features and bike history. The Cipressa ascent is not too demanding except for the initial tough slopes. Thereafter, you can maintain regular rhythm. Once you reach the top you can take the route to Poggio and ride the last kilometres of the Milano-Sanremo.
