Italian Classic Strade Bianche is back in its usual slot in March after being held in August last year as the first race of the WorldTour restart during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The men's and women's races take place over 184km and 136km respectively, with 65km and 30km of the famous white gravel roads in each respective race.

The men's start list for the race is more or less complete with the usual big names set to start, including defending champion Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma), Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck - Quick-Step), Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix), Alejandro Valverde (Movistar Team) as well as several exciting debutants including British rider, Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers). Some Giro d'Italia contenders, including Simon Yates (Team BikeExchange) and Egan Bernal (Ineos) are also riding as a recon for the Grand Tour's gravel stage.

In the shorter women's race,  the star names of Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar), Anna van der Breggen (SD Worx), Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-Sram), Marianne Vos (Jumbo-Visma) Lizzie Deignan and Elisa Longo-Borghini (both Trek-Segafredo) will be on the start line in Siena.

Tim Bonville-Ginn

Tim Bonville-Ginn is one of Cycling Weekly's content writers for the web team responsible for writing stories on racing, tech, updating evergreen pages as well as the weekly email newsletter.


Bonville-Ginn started working in cycling journalism while still at school and university for a voluntary site based on Twitter before also doing slots for Eurosport's online web team and has been on location at the Tour de Yorkshire, Tour of Britain, UCI World Championships and various track events. He then joined the Cycling Weekly team in late February of 2020.


When not writing stories for the site, Bonville-Ginn doesn't really switch off his cycling side as he watches every race that is televised as well as being a rider himself and a regular user of the game Pro Cycling Manager.


He rides a Specialized Tarmac SL4 when out on his local roads back in West Yorkshire as well as in northern Hampshire with the hills and mountains being his preferred terrain.
