The Milan to San Remo Road Cycling Race takes place tomorrow March 19 in Italy. I have been reading about different editions of the race today at milansanremo.co.uk. This thing is a monster of a race as it is the longest of the five “Spring Classics” at 285km or 177 miles. The fastest average speed for that distance was 28.46mi/hr or 45.8km/hr in 1990. DrunkCyclist.com has an interesting post up about the first British winner, Tom Simpson, where I found the link to the race history website above. My favorite story of the ones on the site is about the 1910 Milan-San Remo that was won by Eugenio Christophe. What a bunch of crazy bastards.
