“The Milano-Torino is an undisputed cycling classic and we are proud to see great athletes once again riding their bicycles along the roads of our region – says the Piedmont Region’s Councillor for Sport, Fabrizio Ricca – What awaits them is an adrenaline-filled sprinters’ route that will end in the town of Rivoli. There will be 200 kilometres of exceptional sport in an amazing landscape, full of charm, nature and culture. Piedmont proves to be a land full of opportunities for great racing”.
Paolo Bellino, CEO of RCS Sport, said: “We’ve worked to create different combinations between our cycling races and, at the same time, return to tradition, with Milan as the focal point, hosting the start of the Milano-Torino first and then the Milano-Sanremo. We’re very happy because we’re starting again with a great race and a new route: after crossing the Canavese area, we’ll arrive in beautiful Rivoli, a town with a great history and tradition.”
Mauro Vegni, RCS Sport Cycling Director, said: “We wanted to bring back the oldest classic in the world, the Milano-Torino, in spring as it was at the beginning of its long history. This will contribute to further enhance this race which will enter the calendar on March 16 between Tirreno-Adriatico and Milano-Sanremo. This classic, with its unique charm, will thus recover its original identity, as it was in the past”.
