Here's the press release from HTC-Highroad after Goss' win:

"San Luis Obispo, California - 19th March, 2011 - After 298 kilometers the Australian outsprinted a group of eight riders in the streets of San Remo to claim the victory ahead of Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland and Belgium's Philippe Gilbert.

"I knew I'd been going well, I knew I could get a good result, but actually to get the win is  incredible." Goss said.

"I knew Gilbert was dangerous and would try for an attack on the Poggio [climb], so I rode across to that front group just as we reached the top, and once I was with them I knew I was in with a chance."

"It was an advantage knowing the route. I live nearby and I've trained over the Poggio a few times in the last few days just to check it again."

"The descent was fast, but it wasn't too tricky because fortunately it wasn't wet, and with 500 meters to go I just gave it everything I had and hoped for the best."

Goss has had a spectacular 2011 season thus far, with stage victories in the Tour Down Under, the  Tour of Oman, and most recently in Paris-Nice. Milan-San Remo is his eighth win of the year so far.

"It's been absolutely incredible," Goss said, "I couldn't have dreamed up a better start to the year."

Following Mark Cavendish's win in 2009, this is HTC-Highroad's second victory in three years in Milan-San Remo, one of cycling's top five biggest one-day races."
