Bike racing is serious sport. Quick-Step Floors continues to raid the Spring Classics for pirates booty. Wonder how many wins so far. Getting stoked for Flanders!
Strada Bianca Women
Well the harsh conditions made this race even more beautiful. Anna van der Breggen (NED) would eventually just ride away. Defending champ Elisa Longo Borghini (ITA) looked to have the form but not the luck. Puncture at 75 km and a mechanical at the critical moment with 17 km remaining. Notable: American Megan Guarnier finished 12th.
Strada Bianca Men
WOW. Incredible. Bardet (FRA), Van Ert (BEL), Benoot (BEL), names that were not favorites going in, due to inexperience. Bardet & Van Ert worked well together putting about 50 seconds on the chasers. Benoot played it cool until 38km and would close the gap essentially on his own. I’m wondering if the big guns were just Peter Sagan watching. Clearly the strongest and most daring stood on the podium at the end. Notable: Wout Van Ert (3x CX World Champ) did a spectacular race taking the bull by the horns. He will also ride Flanders.
How hard is 184 km through the Tuscan hills? Just ask 3x CX World Champ Wout Van Ert. Cramping at the finish. If anyone knows how to mount a bike it would be him. Valiant effort. What a race.
GP Industria e Artigianato
One of those rare occasions when descending wins a bike race. My knuckles were white just watching Matej Mohoric (SLO) bomb his way to the finish line. Nibali surely is proud.
