Team Sky head to Milan-San Remo with a strong lineup with Michal Kwiatkowski aiming to seal his second successive title in the first Monument of the season.

Kwiatkowski sealed Team Sky’s first-ever win at La Primavera in 2017, edging Pater Sagan and Julian Alaphilippe in a thrilling three-up sprint finale which saw the Polish rider prevail by mere centimetres.

This year the Team Sky rider will take to the start line in confident mood after beginning the week with a victory at Tirreno-Adriatico but knows that form alone is often not enough to succeed on the iconic 291km course.

“I think Tirreno-Adriatico is the best preparation for this race, I am always motivated to ride well in Milan-San Remo and I know how lucky you need to be in the end to be victorious.

“With a Milan-San Remo win under my belt the pressure will be less as I don’t have to prove anything. I just need to feel good, ride a good race and we know with San Remo that you also need to be lucky too.

“I have worked hard to be in good condition for Strade Bianche, Tirreno and let’s hope at Milan-San Remo too.”

Team Sky for Milan-San Remo: Michal Kwiatkowski, Gianni Moscon, Salvatore Puccio, Luke Rowe, Ian Stannard, Dylan van Baarle, Lukas Wisniowski.
