Magnus Cort will focus on one-day races for the first time after he has mainly focused on stage success in the tours in the last two years, something he succeeded in seven times.
“My program will be different this year,” he told Danish TV2. The first race circled in Cort’s agenda is Milan-Sanremo.
“It won’t be easy to win. But when I look at my honours list, there is simply a big one-day race missing. However, I do dream of that and that’s why I go for it. Of course it is difficult to hope for a monument victory, especially Milan-San Remo. That’s the easiest to race, but at the same time the hardest to win. But I believe I can do it, otherwise I wouldn’t have made it a goal,” said the Dane.
Look like Cort will not race the cobbled classics, but he will be at the start of Strade Bianche, the Amstel Gold Race, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Eschborn-Frankfurt. In the spring campaign he mainly wants to win Milan-Sanremo, in which he finished 8th in 2018.
