The Gran Fondo Milan-San Remo successfully concluded on June 10, 2014.

More than 900 people from four continents participated in the 44th edition of the amateur cycling event that was put on by Union Cicloturistica San Remo and Nyala Wonder Travel.

Fabrizio Fusini, the president of UC San Remo, said of the event: “Those who took part in the race had to deal with the heat and strain that comes with racing, however, once again, participants were able to demonstrate strength and tenacity. And when passion is stronger than fatigue, dreams can come true!”

He also said: “This year has seen some changes, including the departure time, which was at 7 a.m. and instead of everyone starting the race at the same time. Cyclists also went in groups of 200, spaced 10 minutes from each other. This allowed us to have less confusion on the roads concerned. We thank the volunteers who made ​​possible the success of the event, the authorities, the police and the mayors of the municipalities who have helped us. But the biggest thanks is for all cyclists who participated. Here’s looking forward to the race in in 2015!”
