Strade Bianche Women Elite: 23 teams at the start

The Strade Bianche Women Elite, organised by RCS Sport/La Gazzetta dello Sport, will be held in Siena, Italy, on 7 March, a few hours before the start of the Men’s race.

 

It is set to be one of the most spectacular races of the year, a unique event on the global cycling scene thanks both to its special course character including Tuscany’s famous gravel roads, and to the high level of participants.

 

All 8 UCI Women’s WorldTeams, and the best 7 UCI Women’s Continental Teams are expected to start, along with 8 wild cards.

 

The 2019 edition was won by Annemiek van Vleuten (who went on to become UCI Road World Champion later in the year in Harrogate, UK) ahead of Annika Langvad and Katarzyna Niewiadoma.
