Weather at the finish city of Torino (Turin in English) at 12:40 PM, local time: 13C (56F), cloudy, with the wind from the southwest at 5 km/hr (3 mph). No rain is forecast.

The route: The 103rd edition of the oldest race follows an essentially flat route except for when it crosses the Canavese area, where there are some short ups and downs that are neither long nor steep. The route begins from Magenta and crosses the upper Po Valley on flat roads surrounded by rice paddies, touching Novara and Vercelli in order to get to the Canavese area after Cavaglià, Viverone and Bollengo. The Canavese area has small ups and downs that continue north of Turin in the area of the Parco della Mandria. At the entrance to Val di Susa, the road becomes substantially flat again until the finish. In the towns crossed by the route, roundabouts, traffic islands and speed bumps are encountered as usual.
The last 10 kilometers are practically flat until the finish in Rivoli.

Final km:
The last 5km follow flat and very wide urban roads, featuring wide roundabouts. The final bend is situated 400m from the finish. The finishing straight is 400m long, and wide (8.5 meter width), on asphalt.

The race:

There were three non-starters today:  Michael Schaer (Ag2r-Citroën), Luis Luehrs (BORA – hansgrohe) & Davide Cimolais (Cofidis). That left 131 riders to begin today's stage at 11:43 AM.

The peloton averaged 45.7 km/hr the first hour of racing.

Here's the race report from winner Mark Cavendish's Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl team:

Mark Cavendish became the first British rider to win Milano-Torino, whose first edition took place in 1876, just 15 years after Italy’s unification. Present at the start of the Italian Classic (Magenta-Rivoli, 199km) for the first time in his illustrious career, Mark benefited from the excellent work of a well-drilled train, who worked tirelessly to keep everything together and produce a perfect lead-out in a tense finale.

Back with the Wolfpack in a competition for the first time since last September, French Champion Rémi Cavagna showed there is a reason why he is nicknamed the “TGV of Clermont-Ferrand”, putting in some brutal turns of pace-making that easily reeled in a late attack in the closing kilometers before making way to Michael Mørkøv, who once again showed his class, fantastic experience and tactical acumen.

For the umpteenth time since joining Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl, the Dane provided a flawless lead-out, leaving Cavendish in an ideal position with 150 meters to go. The 36-year-old swung around his teammate and dived to the line at ferocious speed, outpowering all his opponents en route to a third victory this season, after the ones he picked up at the Tour of Oman and the UAE Tour last month.

“I like winning races, it doesn’t matter. For a one-day race you have to be dialled – there’s only one opportunity. I had a solid and motivated team around me and this made the difference. They rode incredibly today, controlled the race and allowed me to remain calm. This is the Wolfpack I know and I’m proud to be part of it.”

“It’s the first time I’ve raced Milano-Torino and it makes me happy to have it in my palmares now, alongside another big Classic, Milano-Sanremo. Not many sprinters have done that. I knew I had an opportunity to win it today and I am delighted with how things panned out. To see my name on the winners’ list is quite special”, said Cavendish – now the oldest rider to triumph at Milano-Torino – after his first victory in eight years on Italian soil.
