The Monument race is due to come Milano-Sanremo also called La Classicissima, sweet and pain of the peloton, a true cycling connoisseur’s Classic. This year the race will be 110 years old, to celebrate this important age we designed a sock: La Classicicssima.

Let us tell some epic facts about this Monument that start from Milano get throught the tough Turchino pass leading to the warm Liguria until Sanremo.

La classicissima is a kind of race, if you win it you will reach eternal glory. If you win it 7 times like Eddie Merckx did, you are godlike. You can’t call it epic because it is total. A superhuman hustle that takes all of your cells. A 291 kilometer ride in a blow, from Milano to Sanremo. Rain, snow, hot, ice, wind. Everything could happen. There is no time for distraction. It is the race of unforgettable runaways. Like the Fausto Coppi one, when in 1946 won with 14 minutes of advantage on Tessieri (the second). 150 kilometers alone at 36km speed. It is the race of the Poggio and Cipressa. Killer climbs, to face  after 250 kilometers of struggle. And then, a green warm breeze and a blue emerald sea unveals. It is the race that if you ride it, even if you are not a pro, you can feel like a real champion.
