Strade Bianche Preview

Race Profile


The gravel roads of Tuscany await us for the 2020 edition of the Strade Bianche, often termed to most scenic race on the cycling calendar. The race moves from the PTHC scale to the HC scale for this year's edition, meaning the best riders from the PCT will be competing in this year's edition.

The most recent winners of this race are Toms Skuijns and Simone Ponzi but no past winners start this particular edition. This gives an opportunity for someone to put their name up onto the honours board of this event.

The profile will take the riders over 194.7 km of constantly undulating roads before culminating in a short uphill sprint to the line. This is a race meant for the pure punchers, unless a daredevil gets other thoughts some time in the race!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Gautier79716776

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/cap.png Di Maggio starts as top favourite for this race, with his combination of string hill-climbing skill and powerful kick.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Schreurs and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/sct.png Beltran are better overall riders with the former's top speed likely to help him if it comes down to a sprint to the line.

The aging pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Claeys still has enough prowess to find himself high on the favourites' list of such races but his backups have deteriorated and I think his team will be happy if he lives up to his rating.

Always a contender for a great result, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Borges holds his team's hopes on his capable shoulders, and will be targeting a podium at the minimum from this race. He is perhaps the best 'finisher' in this race among the top contenders.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Ulissi is similar to Borges in his make-up, and has a better sprint to boot, He is another contender to finish higher than where the preview puts him.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Paulinho isn't much different from the previous duo, with his improvements in the off-season. The only thing that can hold him back is his slow sprint, if it comes down to that.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Turgis is one part of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Farfetch's plans for this race, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Yates not making it onto the favourites' list because of his lower puncher capabilities. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Turgis started off the season excellently with a win in Gisborne and would like to continue that form in this race.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Betancourt, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Prevar, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Waeytens and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Dowsett are very similar riders, and each of them are well capable of a Top 5 finish on their day. It remains to be seen as to what strategy GCN adopt between pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Schreurs and Dowsett, because the two of them racing together has previously backfired on them already this season.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Gebrezgabihier is likely to the super-domestique/co-leader for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png MOL behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Waeytens while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Bilbao and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Gautier will take leadership duties for their respective teams and upset the predictions with a higher finish.

The best thing I have to offer is 75 HI Ramunas Navardauskas - so yeah, not a chance for me
De Plus not making the preview is a bit scary, but the shorter hills aren't as good for him as the longer hills in Portugal and Pais Vasco. Still, a top 20 would be nice.
Changed my sig, this was getting absurd.
Nothing to see here for us. Any point will be welcomed

Correct, I am not expecting a win but I'd be happy with a top five.

Benoot is here, will be a test to see in which area to focus on his further training. Is his base stats more fit for these types of races or not. Any sort of point harvest would be satisfactory, so lets try and get into a break, so we might be able to take a surprise result home from Italy.

This could be a good place for Borges to leave his mark, but I'd place Beltran and Ulissi as more likely candidates. Looking forward to it. Thanks for another race. Abi!

Time to see if the hill depth trio of Bilbao Moazemi and Klemme can deliver the minor places we need to keep points rolling in.

I sent Yates here because of the non-stop climbing in the first half of the race, which should be very dependent on the Mountain stat. However after the season Turgis has had so far, I'm no longer convinced that was really necessary Pfft
Will this be the first race of the year that Summerhill won't win? Andorra come with a huge cobbles lineup again, but I guess that won't be really useful here...

Beltran, Borges and Turgis are my favorites, so someone else will probably win Pfft
da Generali trio s here + Siskevicius. Definitely a chance for some upset potential, if not, a bunch of depth points

Paulinho has been in good shape since we got rid of Vogt. I hope that this good form can continue in this race, to expect a victory would be unrealistic but I think that a top5 is quite possible.

Proud history of doing shit all here. Looking good for the four-peat.

We need Beltran to keep the good form from the Apex Classic going here!

Thanks for the preview Abhi Smile

Good enough for De Plus on this profile. Thanks for the report!
Changed my sig, this was getting absurd.
Strong performance by Areruya, you love to see it Smile
Thanks AbhishekLFC, congrats Duolingo!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Minions will want to forget this race as soon as possible.

Weren't we supposed to race in Stade Bianche today? Nah, must have been a nightmare.
Manager of Minions
All right, not bad. Benoot overperforming a bit. Not many points, but we'll take it

Two in the top20, but the places dissapoint. In some pictures we were in better positions...nah, maybe next time...
Thanks for the report.
