Test your knowledge: How much do you know about Milan-San Remo?

––– THE CONTEST HAS FINISHED – The winners can be found here –––

It’s quiz time. This week we’re bringing you an extra-hard edition in honor of Milan-San Remo, the first monument of the season, which takes place on Saturday. And it looks to be another action-packed edition, with last year’s victor Michal Kwiatkowski having secured overall victory at Tirreno-Adriatico on Tuesday following the final-stage time trial. The 2014 road race world champion showed that he’s ready to defend his Milan-San Remo title on Via Roma this weekend.

To celebrate the first Monument of the year, we have decided to give away two Sanremo 3.2 Speedsuits. Entering is easy and open to all Castelli Newsletter subscribers.
