Apparently Strade Bianche will be raced on Saturday, March the 2nd, while the next day will be held the Giro Del Lazio.
Weird, really.

Perhaps now, some of the riders who would go to P-N can race Strade before and have the Sunday as rest-day

it may be. But I think the main reason is to have Rome on a Sunday, which would lighten the traffic.

Anyway, worse riders have finished top 10 in the TDF (Lemevel, Zubeldia, LLS...). Always some lucky guy in there who's gained a lot of time from breakaways. Why not Nieve? I certainly wouldn't put money on him not being 10th, at least
