Cipressa is a climb in the cycling classic Milan-San Remo. The climb is not so very steep, and would normally be no problem, but the riders have already 270 kilometers in the legs. In 1960 the Poggio, a 4 km climb just a few kilometres before the finish, was introduced to the race. In 1982 the Cipressa was added to make the final harder.
