Milano-Torino: Colle di Superga to decide the winner

The first RCS Sport Autumn Classics will be raced on 5 October starting at San Giuliano Milanese (Sesto Ulteriano) and finishing on the Colle di Superga after 186km.   Now at its 98th edition – but older than any other bicycle race, having been first run in 1876 – Milano-Torino is 141 years old. Previously won by many great cycling champions, this race – organised by RCS Sport/La Gazzetta dello Sport – is an international level Classic end of season cycling battle. The last edition was won by Miguel Angel Lopez with an attack on the ramps of the Colle di Superga, ahead of Michael Woods and Rigoberto Uran.   THE COURSE The route starts in San Giuliano Milanese (Sesto Ulteriano) and rolls across the Po Valley along flat roads, all the way through the Vigevano and Lomellina plains, up to Casale Monferrato, where the race profile becomes wavier, with gentle climbs and descents that lead to the final circuit. The route rolls past San Mauro Torinese and all along the Po River in Corso Casale, where it takes in the first climb to the Basilica of Superga. The road then drops down into Rivodora on a technical descent (diverting 600 metres before the finish) that leads back to San Mauro. Here the route goes up again, all the way to the finish, with gradients exceeding 10%. The fixed feed zone is in Casale Monferrato (km 91-94).   FINAL KILOMETRES.. .
