Rain had been expected for Saturday’s Strade Bianche but the latest weather forecasts for Siena and Tuscany are now predicting dry, spring-like conditions for both the men’s and women’s races. That means the dust and a lack of visibility in the peloton could be an important factor in the race.  

The riders have enjoyed temperatures of up to 17 celsius during their reconnaissance rides this week, with many of them opting to train in shorts.
