12th STRADE BIANCHE NAMEDSPORT – 184km, 11 sectors and 63km on gravel roads (34.2% of the course)

It’s a twisty and undulating course, with no long climbs but punchy hills, most significantly on the unpaved parts. There are roughly 63km of gravel roads, across 11 sectors (eight of those shared with the Women Elite course).

Starting from Siena (Stadium/Medicean Fortress area), the initial undulating kilometres are on Tarmac before reaching the 2.1km-long gravel Sector 1 at km 18, which is perfectly straight and slightly downhill.

After few kilometres the riders then face Sector 2 (5.8km), the course’s first real challenge with a short descent followed by a long climb with sections of over 10% gradient.

The course then goes through Radi, where gravel Sector 3 starts (4.4km; the second part of the race’s first edition gravel Sector 1) shortly followed by Sector 4 – named “La Piana” – and one of the race’s classic gravel sectors (5.5km in length and featured in the course since the first edition) with no significant gradient leading to Buonconvento.

After few kilometres the second climb of the day starts: the Montalcino (4km at 5%). Following Torrenieri the riders face Sectors 5 (11.9km) and 6 (8km) with only 1km of tarmac in between. Both are hard, hilly, very punchy and with many bends, climbs and descents.

After the second passage through Buonconvento the feed station will be positioned in the area of Ponte d’Arbia. Soon the route reaches Monteroni d’Arbia, which marks the beginning of Sector 7 of San Martino in Grania (9.5km) in the middle of the Crete Senesi. It’s a long sector with continuous up and downs in the first part, ending up with a twisting climb before meeting the Tarmac again.

In Ponte del Garbo (Asciano) gravel Sector 8 begins. At 11.5km it’s the hardest of the race, mostly uphill and characterised by tough hills, the most important being those close to Monte Sante Marie, with steep gradients on both climbs and descents over short distances. After Castelnuovo Berardenga there’s a very short, flat section of gravel (300m) before facing, after Monteaperti, Sector 9 – only 800m long, but with a double digit gradient ramp before rejoining the tarmac in Vico d’Arbia and paved road through Pieve a Bozzone.

Next comes the penultimate section of gravel (Sector 10, 2.4km) on the climb toward Colle Pinzuto (with gradients up to 15%). After a few kilometres the riders then face the last gravel section (Sector 11, 1.1km) which features a sequence of a demanding descents followed by a very punchy climb (max. 18%) that ends up at the Tolfe. From here only 12km separate the riders from the finish in Piazza del Campo, Siena.

Final Kilometres
The demanding final kilometres, with gradients up to 16%, approach the city of Siena along broad, straight sections of road, connected by sweeping curves, first descents and slight climbs. 2km from the finish line, the route joins Via Esterna di Fontebranda; here the gradient touches 9%.
900m from the finish line, the race route passes beneath Fontebranda Gate where the road surface becomes paving slabs. The gradient then exceeds 10% until 500m from the finish line, reaching its highpoint of 16% along Via Santa Caterina. A sharp right hand turn leads to Via delle Terme, and then Via Banchi di Sotto. With 300m to go, the road continues to climb slightly then, 150m from the line, a right turn leads into Via Rinaldini. The route enters the Piazza del Campo just 70m from the finish line. The final 30m descends at a gradient of 7% and the finish line itself is flat.

POINTS OF INTEREST
SIENA
It would have been too difficult to decide between Piazza del Campo and Torre del Mangia, between the cathedral and the other buildings of the same complex, such as the baptistery, the crypt and the grand façade (known as “Facciatone”). So the entire old town centre was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site for its outstanding artistic value. Siena is a true jewel of art, both sacred and profane at the same time, ever bustling with life and with more than a million visitors each year. It hosts major sporting and cultural events, such as the legendary Palio, staged twice a year, in which the 17 city quarters (“contrade”) challenge each other in front of large crowds coming from all over the country to attend the town’s most famous and iconic event.

The Strade Bianche is a legendary race that perfectly fits into a historical context that serves as an excellent setting for both the race start and finish. While waiting for riders to fly by, spectators can explore the city’s monuments and enjoy the many local delicacies, including wild boar sauces and specialties, ribollita, panforte (Siena’s iconic dessert), as well as world-renowned, refined wines, such as Chianti. Ricciarelli, traditional pastries made from almonds, sugar and egg whites, are the perfect snack while waiting for the finish.

Siena was founded by the Etruscans, it grew under the Romans, and was ruled by the Ghibellines and later the House of Medici. Nowadays, Siena belongs first and foremost to all those lucky ones who have visited or will be visiting this UNESCO World Heritage site. A must-see: Torre del Mangia. A must-taste: Ricciarelli. The best time to be in town: 4-5 March; or 2 July and 16 August – Palio di Siena.

Johannes Hirschbichler muss Saisonstart nach Sturz verschieben!

Der sympathische Salzburger hat sich den Start in sein erstes Profijahr sicher etwas anders vorgestellt. Nach einem Trainingssturz in Calpe (Spanien), reiste er gestern wieder in seine Heimat zurück um sich weiteren Untersuchungen zu unterziehen. Der unglückliche Sturz beim Sprinttraining über den Lenker hat in der Erstdiagnose bereits einen Schlüsselbeinbruch bestätigt, sowie eine leichte Blessur am Kopf. Trotzdem ist er bereits wieder guter Dinge und hofft auf eine rasche Rückkehr in den Rennmodus. Das Team wünscht Johannes eine schnelle Genesung!

Steven Kruijswijk`s rosa Trikot ist nie in Gefahr

Nach der 18. Etappe des Giro d’Italia heute in Pinerolo, bleibt Steven Kruijswijk im Rosa Trikot. Die Position des LottoNL-Jumbo war nicht auf dem Pramartino in Gefahr, der einzige kategorisierte Anstieg des Tages. Matteo Trentin (Ettix-Quick Step) gewann die Etappe vor der Gruppe von Favoriten mit 13 Minuten.

Früh auf der Etappe, ging eine führende Gruppe von 24 Ausreißern ohne LottoNL-Jumbo Radfahrer. Die Männer von Steven Kruijswijk setzen hinter das Tempo. Sie fuhren rund 100 Kilometer in zwei Stunden. “Alles lief heute nach Plan, eine große Gruppe ging schnell weg”, sagte Sportdirektor Addy Engels. “Das Trikot war nie in Gefahr und Steven freut sich auf die kommenden Tage.”

Hohes Tempo
LottoNL-Jumbo fuhren den ganzen Tag vorne, aber die Geschwindigkeit wurde festgestellt. “Es war ein hohes Tempo an einem Punkt, es gab sogar Fahrer die fragten, ob wir möglicherweise verlangsamen könnte so konnten sie pinkeln”, sagte Kruijswijk. “Ich habe nicht viel von dem Peloton gesehen, weil meine Teamkollegen hatte nur mich. Ich war nie außerhalb der ersten fünf der Gruppe. ”

Options abound for Argyle Armada at Tour Down Under

Cannondale Pro Cycling Team has assembled in Adelaide with a strong all-around squad capable of performing over the varied terrain served up by the Santos Tour Down Under. The Argyle Armada plans to target the sprint stages alongside a top ten on the general classification in the WorldTour season opener.

“We selected a team that would provide us for options on every stage,” said head sport director Charly Wegelius. “Our specific objectives will be shaped on the road, but we have distinct roles in mind for every rider.”

Wouter Wippert will make his debut in argyle at the Tour Down Under as part of Cannondale Pro Cycling Team’s seven-man squad. A stage winner in Adelaide last year, Wippert hopes to snag a second sprint victory in the opening race on the WorldTour calendar.

“It’s good to be back in Adelaide, the place where it all started last year with my first WorldTour win,” said Wippert. “For this year, the goal is the same – start the season with a win on one of the stages. The whole team is very motivated. I’m looking forward to next week when we’ll try to get the win together in green.”

While Wippert offers the American-registered squad options in the sprints, Simon Clarke has his sights set on the general classification. The Australian, who will line up for his tenth Tour Down Under start, will also serve as road captain in the WorldTour season opener.

Alberto Bettiol, newly crowned New Zealand time trial champion Paddy Bevin, Moreno Moser, Michael Woods and Ruben Zepuntke join Wippert and Clarke in Adelaide.

Afrikanische „Dauphine-Bergziege“ und Cannondale mit Jungstars

Neben der US-amerikanische WorldTour-Mannschaft Cannondale – Garmin hat auch das südafrikanische Team MTN – Qhubeka seine Fahrer für die am 4. Juli beginnende 67. Österreich Rundfahrt bekannt gegeben. Neben großen Talenten und Routiniers bei Cannondale sticht bei der südafrikanischen Equipe vor allem ein Fahrer heraus: Der Eritreaner Daniel Teklehaimanot, der bei der Dauphine Libere Anfang Juni des Jahres die Radsportwelt mit seiner angriffslustigen Fahrweise und dem Gewinn des Bergtrikots überraschte!

Der 26-jährige Daniel Teklehaimanot ist ein Pionier, ein Pionier auf zwei Rädern. Als erster Afrikaner überhaupt gewann er 2010 bei den kontinentalen Meisterschaften alle drei Titel (Straßenrennen, Einzelzeitfahren und Mannschaftszeitfahren). Und als erster Afrikaner überhaupt gewann er bei einem UCI WorldTour-Rennen ein Wertungstrikot! So geschehen bei der diesjährigen Dauphine Libere, wo sich Tour de France-Sieger Chris Froome das Gelbe und Teklehaimanot das Bergtrikot sicherte. „Er ist ein absoluter Gewinn für das Starterfeld der Österreich Rundfahrt und wir hoffen, dass er seine gute Form von der Dauphine bis zu uns konservieren kann“, sagt Tourdirektor Wolfgang Weiss.
