The 104th cycling classic Milan – Sanremo took place on March 17th, 2013. For the first time in its history, the race was not held on a Saturday, as usual, but on a Sunday. It was part of the UCI World Tour 2013 and the fourth race within it. The race was originally supposed to take place on the same track as the year before, but due to snowfall on the Passo del Turchino , the race was shortened by 52 kilometers to 246 kilometers. The winner was the German Gerald Ciolek from the South African team MTN Qhubeka .

The 19 ProTeams were entitled to start . In addition, the organizer gave wildcards to six Professional Continental Teams . Each team competed with eight drivers.


The top favorite was the Slovak Peter Sagan from the Italian cycling team Cannondale Pro Cycling , after winning two stages in the Tirreno – Adriatico stage race a week earlier , one in a mass sprint and one from a group. If a large group crosses the finish line, former winners Matthew Goss , Mark Cavendish , and Alessandro Petacchi as well as André Greipel would be favorites. Gerald Ciolek had outsider chances after finishing third and fourth at Tirreno-Adriatico. Other favorites besides the 2008 winner were Fabian Cancellara , World Champion Philippe Gilbert , Vincenzo Nibali and the Norwegians Thor Hushovd and Edvald Boasson Hagen .

Race course

In bad weather, a group of six around Lars Ytting Bak , Maxim Belkow , Filippo Fortin , Pablo Lastras , Matteo Montaguti and Diego Rosa was able to pull away shortly after the start . Due to snowfall on the Passo del Turchino , the race had to be interrupted after 118 km in Ovada . The drivers were taken to Cogoleto by bus , from where it was 126 km to the finish. In the further course, another mountain was bypassed with the Le Mànie. The race resumed at 3:00 p.m. The leading group started the race with a lead of 7:10 minutes on the main field. The last breakaway was caught 33 kilometers from the finish. Other drivers then attacked. In the descent from Poggio, the group around Sylvain Chavanel , Peter Sagan , Fabian Cancellara , Ian Stannard , Gerald Ciolek and Luca Paolini took the lead. The main field followed at a short distance. Sagan attacked two kilometers from the finish, but Cancellara was able to close the gap. Then Stannard tried. This time Sagan did the follow-up work and Stannard was caught just before the devil's rag. Gerald Ciolek won the final sprint of the group of six. After Erik Zabel 12 years ago, a German won the trip into spring again .
