Kristen Faulkner has been disqualified from Strade Bianche, having originally finished in third place in the Italian 'white roads' Classic. Her relegation is the result of her use of a blood glucose monitor, which could be seen on her arm both during the race and on the podium.

A short statement from the UCI confirmed: "Kristen Faulkner has been disqualified from the 2023 Strade Bianche which took place on 4 March, for breach of article 1.3.006bis of the UCI regulations due to the wearing of a continuous glucose monitoring sensor throughout the event."
