The men’s race will be equally as exciting with the winners of the past two editions, Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) and Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck – Quick-Step), at the start line, as well as Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix), who will make his debut on the Sienese gravel.

Other stars looking to make history at the Piazza del Campo finish line are Davide Ballerini (Deceuninck – Quick-Step) – who won Omloop Het Nieuwsblad last Saturday – Tadej Pogačar (UAE-Team Emirates), Jakob Fuglsang (Astana – Premier Tech), João Almeida (Deceuninck – Quick- Step), Tim Wellens (Lotto Soudal), Greg Van Avermaet (AG2R Citroën Team), Simon Yates (Team BikeExchange), Bauke Mollema (Trek – Segafredo), Egan Bernal (INEOS Grenadiers), Alberto Bettiol (EF Education – Nippo), Alejandro Valverde (Movistar Team) and Michał Kwiatkowski (INEOS Grenadiers).

Making History With A Triple Win

With two Strade Bianche victories each in their respective jersey pockets, Annemiek Van Vleuten and Michal Kwiatkowski will look to match the record of three victories achieved by Fabian Cancellara (2008, 2012 and 2016). Should they succeed, a segment of Strade Bianche will be named in their honour, as it happened with the Swiss champion’s name from the 2017 edition.

15th STRADE BIANCHE Eolo – 184km, 11 sectors and 63km on gravel roads (34.2% of the course). Race start at 11:40 CET, finish around 16:30 CET.

7th STRADE BIANCHE WOMEN ELITE Eolo – 136km, 8 sectors and 31.4km on gravel roads (23.1% of the course). Race start at 9:10 CET, finish around 13:15 CET.
