Fabian Cancellara (CSC) won the Milan – San Remo race (300 km) yesterday (22 March 2008). Paolo Bettini made an early attempt to take and keep the lead. Oscar Freire seemed to be up to something but Cancellara prevailed in the end. It was a beautiful day to ride from Milan to San Remo, and the views of the Mediterranean from the race course were simply astounding.
