Strade Bianche chasing monument status

    We love this story. We love this race.

    DS Fabrizio Guidi spoke to Andrew Hood of VeloNews about the emergence of Strade Bianche as one of the most interesting, exciting and prestigious races on the calendar. The one-day Italian race gained WorldTour status this year and has firmly established itself as a spring highlight among riders, teams and fans alike.

    “We have Sep and Rigo on the same team, and it’s not usual that they race together, but both can be a leader in this race,” Guidi said. “It’s an open race, unpredictable. You need to be a complete rider to win here. Already at 60km into the race, there are things happening. It’s not closed until the very end of the race. The riders really like coming here.”
