Strade Bianche 2014

The dirt roads of Tuscany will again provide a testing race route and stunning backdrop for the Strade Bianche race on Saturday March 8.

The 200km route starts in the shadows of the iconic towers of San Gimignano and ends in the spectacular Piazza Il Campo in the centre of Siena. The ten sections of dirt roads will test rider's ability and form, with the late sections expected to split the peloton and reveal who will fight for victory on the climb to the centre of Siena.

Moreno Moser and Peter Sagan dominated the final podium in 2013 but Cannondale will face serious opposition from Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing) –who is looking for a third victory. Also expected to fight for victory are Cadel Evans (BMC), Filippo Pozzato and Damiano Cunego (Lampre-Merida), Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) and Carlos Betancur (Ag2r-La Mondiale).
