    The Milan-Sanremo 2014 race route in Google Maps/Google EarthThe Primavera will take place on Sunday already! The 105th edition of Milan-Sanremo (or Milano-Sanremo in Italian of course) will this year again take place on Sunday, just like last year when that was a first.

    If you translate "primavera" from Italian, you get the English equivalent "spring" and the weather conditions will indeed be more spring like this year (with a hesitating sun but some sprays in the afternoon closer to the finish) than last year. Les daunting conditions thus but still almost 300 kilometers to ride ...

    So, will it end in a sprint or not? We'll see that on Sunday and we'll get to know who'll be the winner of the 2014 edition of Milan-Sanremo!

    In this article you'll find a detailed presentation of the Milan-Sanremo 2014 race route, on Google Maps, with the time- and route schedule and its profile which shows the different climbs, mainly in the second part of the race. Finally, you'll also find a KML file which allows you to explore the Milan-Sanremo 2014 race route in Google Earth in order to discover te race route in detail, for example in a virtual fly-over!

    The Milan-Sanremo 2014 race route in Google Maps

    The fictive start of the most prestigious Italian classic will be given on the Corso Sempione after the signature on the Piazza Sempione in Milan. Following the Via Canova, Via Mario Pagano, Via Guido D'Arezzo, Viale di Porta Vercelina, Viale Papiniano, Viale Gabriele D'Annunzio, Viale Gian Galeazzo, Via Pietro Teuliè, Via Gian Carlo Castelbarco, Via Carlo Bazzi, Via Lampedusa, Via Lorenzo Valla, Via Medeghino towards the Via San Domenico Savio and then the Via della Chiesa Rossa, the riders will get at the km 0 south of the city, at 8.5 kilometers from the meeting place.

    From there, the race will go off towards Binasco where the riders will turn towards Pavia and Casteggio. Direction south-west from there, towards Voghera and Tortona and then Nova Ligure. From Basaluzzo, the riders descend south towards Ovada and the feeding zone in Campo Ligure.

    The race then gets harder, with the climb of the Passo del Turchino. This will be followed by a flatter part on the sea side and the riders get via Arenzano, Varazze, Savona and Finale Ligure to the second feeding zone, in Ceriale, where the riders again get some forces before they attack the last part of the race, usually more animated.

    Indeed, on their road, the peloton will then find three capi following up on each other, the Capo Mele, Capo Cervo and Capo Berta, before they get on the more well known climbs of the Cipressa and the Poggio. On the top of the last mentioned climb, they'll only have 6.1 kilometers left before they get to the finish in Sanremo where we'll see whether the race ends in a sprint from a reduced peloton or a battle between a few riders or a solo breakaway ... Who will follow up on Oscar Freire (2010), Matthew Goss (2011), Simon Gerrans (2012) and Gerald Ciolek (2013)? We'll see on Sunday around 5.15PM.

  1. Bonjour Thomas,

    Vous avez fait une petite erreur, la Pompeiana n'est pas supprimée du profil.
    Un changement de parcours avait été évoqué par certain autour de Spotorno, mais à première vue, l'organisation conserve son parcours : ce ne serait pas mal, histoire de coller une autre bosse comme la Manie pour faire mal !
    Avec la pluie annoncée, un beau final s'annonce.

  2. @Aurélien M., je ne pense pas avoir fait d'erreur. Au contraire, il a été question que la montée de Pompeiana soit rajoutée au parcours de Milan-Sanremo cette année, mais finalement pour des raisons de sécurité cette idée a été abandonnée, au moins pour cette année.

    Le parcours ci-dessus est celui tel qu'il est présenté par l'organisateur de la course, avec un départ légèrement différent et la suppression de la montée de Le Manie par rapport à l'année dernière, pas d'autres changements.

  3. Pardon, j'ai compris ta remarque ! L'erreur vient de l'itinéraire horaire tel que fourni par l'organisateur qui lui semble passer par Pompeiana. En effet, l'itinéraire horaire indique qu'à Riva Ligure la course tourne à droite sur le SP50 alors que ce ne sera en réalité effectivement pas le cas.

    J'avoue me baser sur l'itinéraire horaire, d'autant plus qu'habituellement ils sont tellement précis chez RCS Sport que c'est un sans fautes garanti ... Je m'en vais de ce pas corriger cela !

  4. Peter Sagan is determined to win a classic, and this could be the one.

  7. Ooit zelf een maal gereden als wielertoerist (toerfietser),waarvan de laatste honderd kilometer langs de kust onder barre weersomstandigheden en dat nog wel op
    3 september (1989).Vanaf de Poggio hevig onweer en gigantische regenbui bij het haventje stond onze Belgische bus bijna tot de assen in het water en daarbij kwam ook nog ,dat de dubbeldekker nog zo lek als een mandje was,onvergetelijke dag.Tocht voor mij niet voor herhaling vatbaar i.v.m veel te drukke kustweg.
