Wout van Aert beats Julian Alaphilippe to win Milan-San Remo 2020

Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) won the 2020 Milan-San Remo ahead of Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick-Step), with the Belgian beating the defending champion in a two-up sprint to the line on the Via Roma.

The pair had got away after and Alaphilippe attack on the Poggio, and narrowly held off the peloton going into the final few hundred metres.

Alaphilippe launched his sprint first from behind Van Aert, but he could do nothing to stop his rival from powering to the line just ahead of him.

Michael Matthews (Sunweb) managed to take third from the peloton behind.
