The Strade Bianche's history may be short, but it is a race which regularly creates some great early-season Classics racing. The landscape and scenery of the Tuscany region lend themselves beautifully to cycling, with the challenging, dusty parcours juxtaposing with the camera shots of the rolling countryside.

Setting off from San Gimignano, the race, which only debuted in 2007, winds for 176km through the Siena region, finishing with a tough climb in the city of Siena itself.
