Taking place the day after the professionals race the Spring classic “La Primavera” Milan – San Remo, the granfondisti can enjoy a taste of the race by attempting a new GranFondo the first edition of which took place in 2016, “la Classicissima“. It starts in San Remo, heads east to Imperia then North into the Ligurian mountains, turns and heads back to the coast, tracing the route of Milan – San Remo including the often-decisive climbs of the Cipressa and the Poggio di Sanremo. The finish line will be the summit of the Poggio, making it safer and easier for their return to San Remo.
Combine this event with watching the finish of the professional race on the Saturday either atop the Poggio or down on Via Roma for the sprint finish, together with a wider exploration of the fantastic cycling the Côte d’Azur has to offer, based in beautiful Beaulieu-sur-mer just down the coast near Nice…make it a long weekend to remember or extend to a full week of early-season training which will pay dividends for the rest of the year.
