Michal Kwiatkowski wins Milan-San Remo | Episode 11

Mar 21, 2017, 06:49 PM

March 22 | The Cycling Podcast this week looks back at the first monument of the season, Milan-San Remo, with Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discussing Peter Sagan’s searing attack on the Poggio and Michal Kwiatkowski’s perfectly judged sprint on the Via Roma.

Did Sagan not listen to last week’s podcast, in which Daniel advised him to exercise some patience? Or did it not make much difference – would Sagan have won the sprint? Or, as he said afterwards, is the show more important than the result? Kwiatkowski, meanwhile, has been a thorn in Sagan’s flesh since the pair were juniors. The Pole continued Team Sky’s best ever start to a season – ironic, given their troubles off-the-bike – adding Milan-San Remo to Strade Bianche after Sergio Henao claimed Paris-Nice a week earlier.
