The organisers of Strade Bianche in Italy have will have to come good on their promise to Fabian Cancellara to name a sector of the event’s famous white gravel roads after him, as he took a third victory in the race on Saturday.

The Swiss Trek-Segafredo rider was part of an elite four-man lead group in the final 20km of the 176km race in Tuscany.

Cancellara, world champion Peter Sagan (Tinkoff), and Etixx-QuickStep duo Gianluca Bramibilla and Zdenek Stybar fought it out for the honours up the tough final climb into Siena.

Brambilla – who had also been in the day’s earlier escape group – had attacked prior to the final climb, but lost momentum as he was caught and pass by Cancellara and defending champion Stybar.

Cancellara out-paced Stybar to take the win as Sagan faded and had to settle with fourth behind Brambilla.
