The first Monument race of the season is upon us with the Milan-San Remo as a glittering field of cyclists head to Italy for this Spring Classic – the longest one-day race in road cycling. The 300km course this year sees the return of its famed mid-race Turchino climb and traditional coastal route after their exclusion for the past three years. Join us for a spin as we explain how to get a 2022 Milan-San Remo live stream and watch UCI World Tour cycling online wherever you are right now.

Kicking off at the Vigorelli velodrome, the race will see the riders work their way through the course for the best part of seven hours, with the closing stages played out along an iconic 40km stretch along the Via Roma - one of the most exciting climaxes to any race on the tour.
No better example of that came with last year's race which saw Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) claim victory with a late attack coming off the Poggio. This year's start list boasts a host of top talent, with Julian Alaphilippe, Tom Pidcock, Sam Bennett, Wout van Aert, Caleb Ewan, and Tadej Pogačar all set to battle it out for the prestigious title.
