Cyclingnews will have live coverage of Milan-San Remo from 8am GMT on Saturday, March 19.
Greg Van Avermaet refused to reveal BMC’s tactics for Milan-San Remo but said he is ready to join an attack or wait for the sprint, insisting the best strategy for La Classicissima is to race on instinct.
“There are 1000 different scenarios for Milan-San Remo. Everyone has a different strategy. You can prepare your move but I think you’ve also got to wait for the race,” the Belgian said in a final BMC press conference, flanked by team manager Jim Ochowicz and directeur sportif Valerio Piva.
“I like to make decisions in the race and so will see how it goes on Cipressa and Poggio. Milan-San Remo is always a fast race and so often you can’t turn back a decision you make. You have to feel the race and make the right decision at right moment.”
Van Avermaet will trust his intuition and tactical understanding to judge whether to go with any attacks or keep his powder dry.
