Milan – not Thaddeus Pogaker, not Primos Roglik – instead Slovenian success story continues on Matej Mohoric cycling.
The 27-year-old won a stunning victory at the 113th Spring Classic Milan-Santemo after covering 293 km in Via Roma and stole the show from big fans. After a valiant attack on Poggio’s descendants, Mohorik took a two – second lead, overtaking Frenchman Anthony Turgis and Dutchman Mathieu van der Poyle. German drivers did not play a role, especially since former champion John Degencolb and classic specialist Maximilian Schachmann had to win.

After his coup, Mohorik lifted the racing machine. Pogakar also gave his native a complimentary pat on the shoulder. The tour champion was in fifth place, while the Belgian Vout van Ert had to settle for ninth place. The two superstars did not give each other a meter in the final played on Mohorik’s cards.
“After pogio I’ve ‘gone. I can not believe it,” said Mohorik, who had planned a win in the winter: “This race is perfect for me, there’s a downhill at the end. ”
Jacobson and co
Pogakar, who has won the Tireno-Adriatico and UAE tours this season and the Stranded Bianche Gravel Race, was unable to make a terrific attack this time around. This was confirmed by the strong Dutch Jumbo Wisma team around Van Ert and Roglik, which was at Cyprus – maintaining very high speeds on the final ascent. It also ensured that many sprinters like Fabio Jacobson (Netherlands) were beaten.
It was the same in Pogio, where the Pogakars attacked again and again and brought back through the match. So the decision was only on the descent. This is not unfamiliar to Mohori. The man from Crunch, who already won two stages of the tour last year, is considered the fastest driver.
Many celebrities were not at the starting line because of the cold outbreak on the bike. French World Champion, 2019 winner Julian Alfilippi, Italian European champion Sonny Colbrelli, last year’s winner Jasper Steven (Belgium), sprint stars Caleb Evan (Australia) and Sam Bennett (Ireland) all have health reasons to be winners.
Experienced Roger Klguez has already said goodbye to the small German division, with only seven drivers in the middle of the race. The race started with the former track cycling world champion catching a cold. For a long time, however, the focus was on a divided group of eight, which began and retreated some time later, and was now seven minutes in front of the field. In Pogio, the last escape attempt ends.
