A Solo Del Cancia Sets a Record

Wet conditions greeted the riders in Milan on Saint Joseph 's Day. When the race entered the Italian Riviera dry and sunny conditions prevailed. Team Ganna's Cesare Del Cancia broke away from the field of 138 with 70 km to go and won the 1937 Milan-San Remo. The 21 year old Del Cancia finished in style and set a new average speed record of 37.408 km/h. He crossed the finish line in San Remo 2 min. 20 sec. ahead of 22 year old Pierino Favalli.
