Strade Bianche Women
Wowsers, what a race. Lotte Kopecky (SD Worx) showed great poise and was the only rider able to hold Annemiek van Vleuten’s (Movistar) wheel in the final run to Piazza del Campo. Van Vleuten seemed to be pushing a massive gear on the steep ramp but Kopecky held on. When it leveled Kopecky pounced to get the hole shot on the final corner. She would not be denied.
Strade Bianche Men
The race that was exciting until it wasn’t. Tadej Pogačar (UAE) dropped a 50KM solo to win his first Strade Bianchi. The excitement came at around 97KM to go when a spectacular crash took down World Champ Julian Alaphilippe (QuickStep). He did make it back to the front. Oddly enough Pogačar used a descent instead of a climb for his attack point. He had a jaw dropping 1:25 margin with 42KM remaining. It seems there is not much the 23 year old can’t do. Notable: American Quinn Simmons finished 7th on the day.
