Milan - Norwegian Alexander Kristoff of the Katusha team has outsprinted former champion Fabian Cancellara and Ben Swift to win the 105th edition of Milan-San Remo on Sunday.

Kristoff, taking his first victory in one of cycling's five 'monument' one-day races, benefited from the good work of teammate Luca Paolini in a 20-up dash for the finish to leave Cancellara frustrated in second with Swift in third place.

Britain's Mark Cavendish, the winner in 2009, was fourth while fellow pre-race favourite Peter Sagan of Slovakia was 10th.

1. Alexander Kristoff (NOR/Katusha) 6hr 55min 56sec, 2. Fabian Cancellara (SUI/TRE) same time, 3. Ben Swift (GBR/SKY) s.t., 4. Juan Jose Lobato (ESP/MOV) s.t., 5. Mark Cavendish (GBR/OPQ) s.t., 6.
