Strade Bianche

Romain Bardet is in Tuscany, snowy since Wednesday, to recon the Strade Bianche. Snow has fallen and he has posted on social media. The white gravel roads are looking whiter with snow and ice and last weather report is snow for Thursday. Heavy rain is forecast for Saturday's race that may just turn the white gravel roads to mud. World Cyclocross Champion, Wout Van Aert could have an 
advantage. World Champion, Peter Sagan will hope to start his European campaign with a bang. Michal Kwiatkowski will be looking to defend his title. Philippe Gilbert is also back (2nd in Le Samyn) and is looking for his second win. Snow or mud... either way it will be epic.
