    ... to what makes this great race so great, was my original title for this story, written on the eve of my first trip to San Remo to view La Primavera live. Like viewing any of pro cycling's Monuments, this was a spiritual journey, and this report was my humble attempt to put that into pictures and words.

    Course Preview: The 2014 Milan-Sanremo will for the fourth time break with tradition by adding the new Pompeiana climb in the jagged end of the 300km route. The addition makes pro cycling's longest Classic even tougher, and hopes to spoil the sprinters' dreams. PEZ takes the first look.

    Riding pro cycling’s roads of glory is something special, and can only be truly appreciated upon reflection of having turned your own pedals over the same tracks as our sports’ greatest heros. And as Nick O’Brien recounts a day on the slopes of the Poggio, it’s even sweeter when battling your own worthy adversary…

    Best of PEZ: If you ever get the chance to chase one of the spring's Monuments - whether it be Italy's Milano-Sanremo, Flanders's Ronde van Vlaanderen, France’s, scratch that, Flanders's Paris-Roubaix, or Wallonia's Liege-Bastogne-Liege - do yourself a favor: find a person who lives for that race, a person that looks forward to the next edition of the race the minute it ends each year. The opportunity to be taken behind the scenes and shown the race from the eyes of a local will change how you look at that race forever.

    This Saturday I have a meeting, a sort of rendez-vous coming back every year. It’s not just to chase a race, but something else. It’s a sort of life chasing through years, and people and facts and ghosts. With each year passing, the chase becomes more difficult. This Saturday it’s the Primavera day.

    Roadside Sanremo: The last couple of days have been action-packed (no surprise there), and now that the things have returned to normal here in Sanremo, there’s time for a little reflection on an amazing day and my first viewing of La Primavera.

    PEZ's Nick O’Brien was live and in-color at the 96th la Primavera in 2005. Now over 100 years old, the race has changed with modern times, but as Nick discovered while riding the final “capi” that make it famous, the corsa is as tough and exciting as ever. Here's a worthy look back as we prep for this weekend's Primavera...

    Milan-San Remo is one of the oldest Classics - this weekend will mark the 99th edition - but the race has changed with modern times, as our Nick O'Brien discovered while riding the final “capi” that make it famous, the corsa is as tough and exciting as ever…
