Mark Cavendish of Team Columbia wins his first attempt at the 300k Milano-Sanremo cycling classic in a photo finish with Cervelo TestTeam’s Heinrich Haussler. I followed the action on the live coverage on www.cyclingnews.com. Now it’s time for my own 60k ride.
Cavendish’s teammate George Hincapie was critical in the final pulling him through the group to the front with just under 1k to go.
