Strade Bianche 2020 start list: Line-ups for rescheduled 14th edition

The Tuscan classic was cancelled in March but takes place in a rescheduled August 1 spot

Italian classic Strade Bianche was the first race to fall to cancellation because of the coronavirus pandemic. Originally scheduled for March 7, both men’s and women’s editions of the Tuscan race will now take place on August 1 2020.

The races take place over 184km and 136km respectively, with 65km and 30km of the famous white gravel roads in each respective race. Strade Bianche is the first race of the revised UCI WorldTour calendars, which run to early November.
