This week the well-known MTB brand , even though it is well-known in other categories, is going to have its Northwave Challenge of the Bkool Winter Cup in the Italian Classic Spring race ending in such beautiful Siena old town streets. The race, like Northwave products, combines different kind of surface  within tarmac roads and gravel that is more common in MTB and this makes the race different and singular. The 2017 edition will be special because this is going to be the first time the Strade Bianche is taking part of the Cycling World Tour races calendar.

Besides, this season is the first one that one of the sections will be renamed as Fabian Cancellara. This expert swiss time trial specialist former cyclist got his third  Tuscan Strade Bianche win in 2016 and this would be his last professional cycling win, and that’s why the organization wants to honor him giving his name to the most iconic section. The race is not one of the longest races, but it’s hard with many uphills and downhills, pavement sections and 11 gravel sections. The race will finish with hard pavement sections in the medieval streets of Siena and finish line is at Piazza del Campo where they celebrate the Palio every year, that is a medieval horse race very famous in Italy.
