Milan-San Remo: Mathieu van der Poel wins 62 years after grandfather
Dutch cyclist Mathieu van der Poel won the prestigious Milan-San Remo 62 years after his grandfather with a late solo attack.
The 28-year-old broke away on the Poggio di San Remo summit with little more than five kilometers remaining.
Italy’s Filippo Ganna was second, 15 seconds back, pipping third-place Wout van Aert and Tadej Pogacar to the line.
“I cannot imagine a better scenario than this one,” said the Alpecin-Deceuninck rider, who becomes the first Dutchman to win Milan San-Remo in almost 40 years.
