Strade Bianche, the famous and much loved Italian classic, takes place this weekend in its usual early March slot marking one of the big and highly anticipated in the men's and women's calendars.

Both races take place on Saturday 4 March across Tuscany's white gravel roads, or Sterrato, with the men's race covering 184 kilometres and the women's a slightly reduced distance of 136 kilometres.

One previous winner of the men's race, Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma), won't be present due to illness. No Van Aert on the start line will certainly make things easier for another race favourite, Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Deceuninck), who will be right in contention along with the likes of Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers) and Julian Alaphilippe (Soudal Quick-Step)
