This year’s Strade Bianche returns to its traditional spring date on Saturday, with cold rain set to replace the heat and high temperatures of August 2020 when the Italian race kicked off the rescheduled competition calendar after the spring COVID-19 lockdown.  

This year marks only the 15th edition of Strade Bianche but the Tuscan race has already earned ‘Classic’ status thanks to the breathtaking rolling dirt roads – with the clouds of dust evoking races of old – and the steep climb through the vineyards up to the finish in Renaissance Siena.
