Libertine Seguros said:Live @ 15km from the line. Group of 12-15 at the front. Langvad, Canuel, Majerus, van der Breggen all there I believe, so Boels look like they ought to be able to do this. Ludwig and Vos also there. Niewiadoma I've spotted and I think Blaak too, so if there's about 12-15 and Boels have FIVE of their riders there, they really will be kicking themselves if they can't convert this.
Edit: Moolman, Van Vleuten, Bastianelli and Ensing also there.
Annemiek leading a bit of a charge, her, Vos and Kasia moving away from the group with her. Annemiek goes again, has a gap, Kasia trying to close it.
Edit 2: Annemiek still had a gap at the top of the climb, and Kasia has now been taken back in by the group which now numbers 8, having dispatched some of the less climbing-adept/durable members like Bastianelli from its ranks. Annemiek has a solo lead which RCS' time gaps now tell us is growing to around 30 seconds! Van der Breggen, Ludwig and Niewiadoma leading the chase, but the majority of the work being left to Anna as it should be with the teammates she has on board. Nothing against Anna, who is arguably the best cyclist in the world right now, but an Annemiek/Kasia/Cille podium would go down very, very well with yours truly.
The impetus seems to be out from the chase and it looks like Annemiek van Vleuten is likely to be your winner...

Just read Annika Langvad, quadruple MTB world champion, is making her professional debut - at the tender age of 34.
She rode her first road race in a long time, at last years world championships, because Denmark was short on climbers, and ended up 37th, despite not having trained for 2 weeks leading up the the race, due to injury..... so Boels-Dolmans signed her and Strade Bianche is her debut.
I really want to watch her attack the italian gravel
