The 11th edition of the Strade Bianche will be held on Saturday, 4 March 2017. The Italian one-day race is gaining prestige with every year and while the name may suggest otherwise, history is still young with an inaugural edition held in 2007. Strade bianche is ‘white roads’ in Italian and refers to the sections of unpaved roads. After a 16% climb in the old town, the race finishes as always on the Piazza del Campo in Siena.
The 2017 Strade Bianche takes in 61.9 kilometres on unpaved roads. The distance of the race amounts to 175 kilometres. Read all about the route of the 2017 Strade Bianche.
