Matej Mohoric won Milan San Remo 2022, upsetting the favorites with a bold solo attack on the final descent with three miles to go. Mohoric rode away from a select bunch of 10 riders including Tadej Pogacar, Wout van Aert and Mathieu van der Poel. It was the second consecutive solo win of the 180 mile race that is traditionally considered a favorite for the sprinters due to the relatively flat course.
“I’ve been thinking about this race since the winter.” Mohoric said at the finish.
Mohoric became the first Slovenian to win Milan San Remo, many believed his compatriot Pogacar would complete the feat this year. MORE RACING NEWS
