Even-know that the Strade Bianche is a very young classic compare to La Doyenne or Paris-Roubaix, but the White Roads Classics are nothing to envy their big brothers.
With one of the most spectacular course of the calendar, the Strade Bianche features many short and punchy climbs, some paved, and others not, covered by small gravels. Easier than cobbles, theses gravel roads offer a surprisingly nice grip and amazing low rolling resistance. Definitely an amazing experience for any cyclists !
But before testing yourself during the Gran Fondo, you’ll have the privilege to experience men and women pro races, from the team presentation in Siena, to the most beautiful finish line in the world, the Piazza del Campo.
If you have to choose and experience one race in your life, this is it, the Strade Bianche is the one. This is our favourite Gran Fondo, which takes place in one of the most beautiful country side of Italy, where the local food and wine meet up so brilliantly with cycling.
So join Altitude Training Cycling Camp, and its experienced guide which has won the Strade Bianche Grand Fondo Elite category of the last 2019 edition !
