This race is awesome, it should soon be considered a true classic. It may be hard to make new classics, but Strade is pretty darn good. I would like to see perhaps one for Italian classic, something in the spring in the narrow winding Italian roads with crazy hills and a winding finish.

This.

It's only not a classic because its new to the pro scene. I think they should give deference to how long L'Eroica has been going on.

In future years it will rival Flanders and PR. In fact I can see a time where they might go back-to-back-to-back. Three consecutive weekends for the hard men.

That would be cool.

This is my new favorite race in the spring and I look anxiously forward to it.
Besides the beauty it is a wonderful display of racing as it should be!

Anyone that have heard which teams that will race this year?

this is not possible as strade bianchi is 1.1 race and therefor only 50% of the teams are allowed to be pro tour

Last year only 14 teams got invited. Don't remember the rules for this level of race, but there are several limiting factors.

(search obsoleted the above part)

(personal note to organizer: consider cutting the team size to 7 or even 6 and invite a few more teams if possible).
