There is the traffic junction on the next Milan-Sanremo, scheduled for 8 August. Some municipalities in the province of Savona would like not to close the Via Aurelia to let the “Classicissima” pass and tomorrow a meeting will take place in the Prefecture to try to find an agreement.
The director of the Cycling Area of Rcs Sport, Mauro Vegni, who promises a beautiful world spot for the Riviera di Ponente, tries to ease the tension. “That of August 8 – admits Vegni during the presentation of the 111th edition of the race – is a date dictated by the difficult moment that we are experiencing for the consequent revolution of the cycling calendar. There will be some more problems than in March but we are confident that the response from the territory may be a strong signal for the restart of our country. Millions of spectators on five continents will follow this classic on TV and we are convinced it will have the success and visibility that have made it legendary “. The main doubt of local administrators concerns the management of security on a weekend in which an invasion of tourists is expected.
