Milan-Sanremo 2022, the favorites: two-way challenge between Tadej Pogacar and Wout van Aert


A last-minute defection, that of Julian Alaphilippe, who obviously went to upset the startlist and also the expectations of the eve. The world champion has decided, given the state of form, to give up the Milan-Sanremo 2022 on Saturday. There are therefore only two big favorites for the Spring Classic , the first seasonal monument.

The most awaited name, the one who will obviously start from pole position, is definitely Tadej Pogacar . The Slovenian of the UAE Emirates is dominating far and wide in this beginning of the year. For him already seven victories in just three events (between UAE Tour, Strade Bianche and Tirreno-Adriatico), but above all several overwhelming tests of strength.

On the Poggio the winner of the last two Tour de France can unleash the brawl and go away. Even if some athlete were to follow his wheel, long-distance endurance and his peak of speed could be decisive in any case. It has no weaknesses.

The only one who at the moment seems to be able to try to rival the brightest star in international cycling is Wout van Aert. The Belgian of the Jumbo-Visma gave a spectacle to the Paris-Nice, dragging Primoz Roglic to victory and winning the time trial. The condition seems to be that of the best days, even if he still appeared not at the top in the sprint. Could the sprint between the two be the decisive moment?
