A beautiful course with a view of the Italian Riviera, arrival in a fashionable seaside city and Italian beauty everywhere along the way, this is the first monument of the season, Milano-Sanremo.
But La Primavera is tough test for the cyclists, the longest race they ride in a road cycling season. However, if we talk about money, only the top 20 riders over the finish line get a cash prize.
The surprising winner Jasper Stuyven took almost half of the total prize fund, with €20,000 for his victory, from the total of €50,000. Caleb Ewan earned €10,000, while Wout van Aert, who won the race last year, won a very modest €5,000 for his efforts after almost seven hours in the saddle.
