Sébastien Hinault: "Milan-Turin for sprinters this year”

The Italian classic often offers an alternation of courses, and this season the choice was in favour of the sprinters… because of the proximity with Milan-San-Remo.

Pre-race

 

“I am going to discover Milan-Turin, which will be my second race in Italy this season, and of course, as for Laigueglia, I am happy to race in my country. I feel better and better in training these last weeks, my goal for this classic will be to help the team so that Arkéa-Samsic can get the best result possible”.

Sébastien Hinault, Sport-Director

The briefing

Milan-Turin is designed this year to be a sprint race. Nacer has recovered well from the cold he suffered in Tirreno-Adriatico and we hope to win with him. He has been in good shape since his recovery and he has already shown that with some good results, so we hope to take first place even if we know that the competition will be strong in this beautiful Italian semi-classic due to the proximity of Milan-San-Remo“.
