Before the 106th edition of the Italian spring classic, ‘La Primavera’ Milan-San Remo, Shimano Race TV caught up with John Degenkolb of the Shimano-sponsored Giant-Alpecin team to discuss what makes the race so special and why he’s trained throughout the winter to prepare specifically for this race.

Degenkolb also talks about the race being won and lost on the climbs of the Poggio and La Cipressa and how saving energy is the most important factor in this brutal race.

The German rider obviously knew what he was talking about, as he would go on to win the race on Sunday. You can see how much victory meant to him after the race.
