The tenth edition of Strade Bianche took place today, whipped by cold winds and under a cloudy sky. The race was won by Fabian Cancellara (Trek) after a close run finale with 2015 winner Zdenek Stybar (Etixx-Quickstep).
For ORICA-GreenEDGE, Luke Durbridge and Jens Keukeleire were the best placed finishers rolling in amongst the fragmented main group.
“Obviously we weren’t there at the results end of the race, it was always going to be difficult with a young team in a big race at this early stage of the season," sport director Neil Stephens said.
