The rebooted Women’s Milan-San Remo is set to take place on 22nd March 2025, sharing the spotlight with the men’s race on the same day, according to radsport-news.com. This information emerged despite the event not being listed on the Women’s WorldTour calendar presented by the UCI in mid-June.

The UCI, after consulting with WorldTour teams via an online survey, proposed a double weekend in Italy, featuring the Milan-San Remo Donne on Saturday and the Trofeo Alfredo Binda on Sunday. The women’s race is scheduled to finish between 14:30 and 15:00 in San Remo, a few hours before the men’s race.

This arrangement allows women’s teams ample time to travel the approximately 320 kilometres from the Mediterranean coast to Lago Maggiore for the Trofeo Alfredo Binda, which will start at 13:00 on Sunday. Both the team presentation and the sport directors’ meeting with the UCI jury will take place on the morning of the race.

Milan-Sanremo

The status of the Women’s Milan-San Remo as either a WorldTour or ProSeries event remains undecided. However, the race is expected to attract top female cyclists, who have long awaited a women’s version of this early-season classic.

RCS, the organiser of the men’s Milan-San Remo and Il Lombardia, will be managing the women’s race. RCS is also responsible for the Giro d’Italia Donne, which will start under their direction for the first time this Sunday. Until now, the Giro d’Italia Donne was organised by different entities.

The anticipation for the Women’s Milan-San Remo highlights the growing demand for parity in high-profile races. With Strade Bianche being the only RCS-organised women’s event until this year, the addition of Milan-San Remo Donne marks a significant development in women’s cycling…if it happens. There have been promises made in each of the last two years.
