Milan–Sanremo: Made for the Aeroad CF SLX
The Classics are about to get serious with the first Monument of 2016 this weekend: Milan – Sanremo. At just under 300 km in length, this is the longest race on the calendar and without doubt one of the most gruelling tests in the UCI WorldTour.
When faced with over seven hours of racing, every aerodynamic advantage a rider can get has the power to make all the difference when it comes to the final showdown. Delivering the fastest, most efficient racing setup in the peloton is what the Aeroad CF SLX was made for and its the bike that Team Katusha’s Alexander Kristoff will turn to this Saturday.
Winner in 2014 and runner-up last year, Kristoff knows what it takes to succeed at Milan – Sanremo. No other event sees sprinters and Classics specialists go head-to-head with Grand Tour riders. The race is held in the balance as climbers try to slip away on the day’s final climb up the Poggio while sprinters’ teams try to hold it together until the iconic finish on the Via Roma in Sanremo.
With five victories to his name already in 2016, all eyes will be in Kristoff and the Aeroad CF SLX.
