Really, the best example is probably Colorado being 2.HC in its first year. Sometimes I wonder if the UCI knows the meaning of HC

World Tour would be too much though, I don't think they can (or want to) manage to deal with so many teams and riders on that parcours

Has this race shifted back to Saturday? Not heard anything about it but I notice the bar at the top of the Gazzetta page has changed from saying 3 March to 2 March.

MSR is updated to Sunday so they have been monitoring it. Nothing about Lazio either way.

Saturday is more sensible really as it won't need to share TV time with Paris-Nice.

Yes, Strade Bianche shifted back to Saturday and Giro Del Lazio will take place Sunday

I did mention it yesterday on the speculation thread Giro Del lazio to be held on that Sunday

Amazing! Everybody with retro bike (made before 1987), old jerseys (I wear "Teka" a 80īs spanish team where raced Lejarreta), really hilly route (some steep sterrato sections almost imposible to ride with old gears) with nusty descents on dirty road.

Plus a good market of retro stuff and good food y nice place.

The best sportive i ever have done.

(sorry for my r....h english)
