Latest News from the Race
Leah Thomas renews with Equipe Paule Ka'I am very grateful to Paule Ka for coming on board for the next four years' says Strade Bianche podium finisher
Despite heading into just its third edition in 2017, the women's Strade Bianche is a premiere event that draws many of the sport's top names to Tuscany for an early-season WorldTour contest.
127km in length, Strade Bianche starts and finishes in Siena, with plenty of challenges along the road. Multiple sections of dirt and gravel roads and a barrage of short but tough climbs in the run-in to an uphill finale practically guarantee exciting racing. The parcours strikes just the right balance to encourage longer-range attacks while still making solo escapes a challenge.
Elizabeth Deignan is the defending champion, winning the 2016 edition of the race ahead of Katarzyna Niewiadoma after settling for runner-up honours in the inaugural running of the event behind Megan Guarnier.
