    The Strade Bianche has in just a handful of editions done what no other young race has before - shouldered its way into the leagues of bona-fide Monuments where the course is what gives it a true identity. Dirt roads, never ending hills, and a landscape as only a true 'vedutista' could paint, it's no wonder the race is a fave among riders and fans alike.
