The 101st edition of Milan-Turin is one for sprinters. The Italian semi-classic canceled the climb of the Superga this year, resulting in a predominantly flat course. You can follow the course live with updates here.

  1. 17h40. Which sprinters are still in the peloton? Caleb Ewan currently has 6 Belgians at Lotto Soudal who will soon be able to attract the sprint train for him. The Australian showed himself several times in the Santos Tour Down Under at the start of the season. For him, Milan-Turin means the restart of his season. & Nbsp; In the Tour of Burgos, Sam Bennett and Fernando Gaviria each won. Arnaud Démare became 2nd twice. We should also not forget Alexander Kristoff, Peter Sagan, Nacer Bouhanni and Matteo Moschetti. & Nbsp; .
  2. 5 pm 14. It is going well in the front of the pack. Sprinter teams like Deceuninck-Quick Step, Groupama-FDJ, Lotto Soudal, UAE Team Emirates, Arkéa-Samsic and Bora-Hansgrohe sent one of their riders to the head of the pack. They alternate there now. It is going well. & Nbsp; .

  9. The escape of the escapees decreases. The pace in the peloton is high because the sprinter teams alternate at the front. Deceuninck-Quick Step now sets the tempo. But also thanks to the efforts of Trek-Segafredo, the lead built up by the early flight continues to decrease. Gijs Van Hoecke and his 5 Italian fellow escapees are now less than 4 minutes ahead of the pack. & Nbsp; Deceuninck-Quick Step has a good chance with Sam Bennett to win in the sprint. This also applies to Trek-Segafredo, which Matteo Moschetti has as a fast man on the team. & Nbsp; . 4 pm 09.
  10. 3:28 PM. The sun is smiling at the riders. Under a bright sky and accompanied by little wind, the riders make their way to Stupinigi just outside the center of Turin. & Nbsp; They are lucky: it is 27 degrees today and not as hot as during the Strade Bianche. They are also spared from rain showers like in the Gran Trittico Lombardo Monday. & Nbsp; .
