The Strade Bianche has only been on the professional bicycle calendar since 2007, but its combination of the Tuscan landscape, gruelling gravel roads and iconic finish in the centre of Siena has made it an instant classic with fans. It’s also a firm favorite in the peloton, with some of the best one-day riders battling it out for honors on the white roads. Just a quick look at recent winners – Zdeněk Štybar, Michał Kwiatkowski, Fabian Cancellara, Philippe Gilbert – tells you all you need to know about its reputation with the pros.
It’s a special week you won’t want to miss, not only for the chance to see some of the world’s top pros racing up close, but also because we’ll ride some of the best roads the region has to offer, including some hidden stretches of white road that we’ve grown to love. And best of all, you’ll get to do all of that on our brand new fleet of gravel-specific bikes from Pinarello. This is a truly unique trip and a great way to kick off the season. You just need to bring your enthusiasm, your love of professional cycling and your early season legs – we’ll take care of the rest.
