The longest of cycling's five Monuments finally takes place this weekend - read on for full details on how to get a live stream of the 2020 Milan-San Remo with our guide below.

Having been postponed from its scheduled date back in the spring, the 111st edition of the La Classicissima di Primavera has been rejigged for this weekend's revised date.

Still a gruelling 299 kilometres, the route has been adjusted inland to avoid tourist hotspots as part of Coronavirus precautions. The race's iconic Via Roma final 40 kilometres nevertheless remains the same.

Deceuninck-QuickStep's Julian Alaphilippe is out to defend his 2019 victory although his preparations in the run up to Saturday's event have been less than ideal, with the Frenchman having a torrid time during last weekend's Strade Bianche after suffering multiple tyre punctures.

Hopes are high meanwhile for Lotto Soudal duo Caleb Ewan and Philippe Gilbert with Belgian star Gilbert out to win the last remaining race of cycling's five Monuments that has so far eluded him.
