Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott), Anna van der Breggen (Boels Dolmaans) and Marianne Vos (CCC-Liv) are confirmed to restart the Women's WorldTour season at Strade Bianche in Italy on Saturday. The three powerful Dutch riders are expected to go head-to-head in a battle for victory on the white gravel roads of Tuscany.

Defending champion Van Vleuten, also the current road race world champion, is currently on a winning streak in her rainbow jersey having won Omloop Het Nieuwsblad in February before the season was shut down due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, and she then won all three one-day races held in Spain last week.
