- News: Milan-San Remo predictions: Peter Sagan can win any way he wants. (Cyclingnews) - Leading directeurs predict who will seize victory at La Primavera and how.

- Jonathan Vaughters on M-SR: "The unique demand of that race is the length. The Poggio is just this intense five-minute period. So it’s funny – it’s this seven-hour race that’s decided in five minutes. It’s a weird combination. It’s not like any of the other classics."

- News: Cavendish ready to dig deep for Dimension Data at Milan-San Remo. (Cyclingnews) - Manxman rules out victory but keen to work for team.

- Gazprom-RusVelo lineup for Milan-San Remo:

Igor Boev
Nikolay Cherkasov
Sergey Firsanov
Artem Nych
Evgeny Kobernyak
Stepan Kurianov
Alexander Vlasov

- Alexander Vlasov (Gazprom-RusVelo): "The season has started not so long ago, but for me it will be already the third WT race. I am more than happy about it. Probably all the professional riders strive to compete in this monumental race, to win it — is a true dream of most of them, and the same applies to me. Of course, I understand that it is my first year in professionals and it's all about getting valuable experience, continuous development and being valuable for the team. Competing with the best cyclists in the world certainly makes me stronger, so I look forward to crossing the start line in Milan and will do everything possible for the result."

- Fabrizio Guidi (EF Education First-Drapac): "It’s special because it’s uncertain.  Every year we’re asking what’s going to happen on the uphill, the downhill of the Cipressa, how to manage the Poggio. Who will attack and when? There are all these questions. Nobody is really able to say what will happen. Until we see the final, then everything seems easy to predict."

- Team Bahrain Merida for M-SR:

Sonny Colbrelli
Kristijan Koren
Heinrich Haussler
Matej Mohoric
Vincenzo Nibali
Luka Pibernik
Franco Pellizotti

- Alberto Volpi (Bahrain-Merida directeur sportif): "This race is very fascinating because it would seem very easy but it can become very difficult. We have high quality riders like our leader Sonny Colbrelli, captain Vincenzo Nibali and the young Matej Mohoric, who won in Larciano 20 days ago.  Together with them - still Volpi - athletes who come from Paris-Nice or “Tirreno” as Pibernik, Haussler, Pellizotti and Koren that will give a great help along almost all 300 kilometers of the Sanremo."

- Team Dimension Data for Milan-San Remo:

163 EISEL Bernhard
164 RENSHAW Mark
165 SLAGTER Tom-Jelte
166 THOMSON Jay Robert
167 VERMOTE Julien

- Mark Cavendish (Team Dimension Data) will be back in action at M-SR: "After crashing in Tirreno I’m obviously not in any sort of condition to win Milan-Sanremo but having been able to train enough through the pain over the last few days I feel like I can go in support of my teammates.  Milan-Sanremo is a race close to my heart and it’s a particular style of race that reminding my body of the rhythm of it this year, will help me to compete for the win in future years."

- BMC Racing for Milan-San Remo:

Alberto Bettiol (ITA)
Damiano Caruso (ITA)
Jempy Drucker (LUX)
Simon Gerrans (AUS)
Jürgen Roelandts (BEL)
Michael Schär (SUI)
Greg Van Avermaet (BEL)

- Maximilian Sciandri (BMC Racing D.S.): "Although we have Greg Van Avermaet as our leader, Milan-San Remo is not a race where we go in as the outright favorite team. However, some sprinters are out of the race so that could change the dynamics a little bit and as usual, we will be going there with the whole team around Greg. Greg has tested himself on a couple of occasions at Tirreno-Adriatico and his condition looks good. I think he is on a good and healthy build-up to Milan-San Remo."

- Philippe Gilbert commenting about Saturday's race: "It’s always difficult to understand this race and predict what will happen, because a win depends on a number of factors and can come after a multitude of scenarios, but one thing that’s certain is we are going there with a strong team and several cards to play.  I was a bit sick in Tirreno-Adriatico, but I’m happy for finishing the race and adding some valuable kilometers under the belt before Sanremo. It’s one of the biggest classics of the year and we are ready for it, despite not having Fernando in the team. The confidence is there, the squad, as I said, is a solid one and doesn’t lack options, and we’ll just see what the race will bring."

- Giacomo Nizzolo (Trek-Segafredo) dropped out of Tirreno-Adriatico due to knee pain.  Said team head doctor Nino Daniele: "This morning he was still having sharp pain in his knee, so we decided to quit here and to start treatment, as there is no sense in risking anything on a day like this with more than 5000 meters of climbing and just one week until Milan-San Remo. The best decision was to stop today, treat him and hopefully he will be ready for the next week."
