MSR means Milan-San Remo
Milan-San Remo (or as the Italians writing: Milano-Sanremo) is the 1st Great Classic of the cycling season. Sometimes the cycling race is also called ' La Prima Vera ' (the first real Cycling Classic of the year). Another name for this contest is: the Saint Joseph's classic, he owes this name to the date of the contest: March 19, the feast day of St. Joseph. In the past, the cycling race was always ridden on 19 March, and later it was adapted to the Saturday that is close to the 19th of March. In 2013 was the ride on Sunday March 17. The ride is almost 300 kilometers and starts in Milan, after which the route towards the south goes to the Riviera.
