After Cancellar already had bridged up to the front group after the Cipressa, he attacked again out of the group to win yetsredays Milano - Sanremo .

Tom Boonen did not play an important role in yesterdays final. Boonen told Belgian newsagency Belga: "Until we were almost at the summit of the Poggio, everything went perfect for us." 

Boonen added: "That Paolo Bettini attacked on the Cipressa, was part of our plan. So the other teams would have to work. It was up to me at the Poggio."

"When the group with fourteen riders broke off, Popovych was in front of me and he couldn't follow so there was a gap. I tried to close the gap, but I didn't succeed. This wasn't the best Milano - Sanremo  of my career. Next year a new chance...," Boonen concluded.
