A race that has now a great importance in the cycling world scene and in the hearts of fans. It is the classic of north of Europe in the most southern point, which winds along a breathtaking and very challenging route through the hills of the Siena’s territory, ending to Piazza del Campo, one of the most beautiful places in Italy.

On the same day there will also be the Women Elite, the first stage of the UCI Women's WorldTour, with 21 formations at the start: 126 great athletes who will try to undermine the current World Champion and winner of the 2018 edition Anna Van der Breggen.
The undisputed king of this exciting cycling classic is Fabian Cancellara, winner of 3 editions. In 2018 Tiesj Benoot triumphed, while the only Italian success is Francesco Moser in 2013. On the podium have risen others as great as Valverde and Peter Sagan.
