With the Het Nieuwsblad and a cancelled KBK out of the way, the cycling season really ramps up this weekend with the Strade Bianche and Paris Nice all kicking off. The Roma Maxima is also on but I will be concentrating on the other two for now.
I am not going to do a race preview, just give you some links to sites that will give you all the info you need.
The photo above was taken during the 2010 Giro d’Italia, but it is on the same roads.
The official site is here.
Inring.com does his usual superb job of looking at the road and race here.
I love this race because it is different. White gravel roads and as seen from the photo above, it is epic in the rain.

Enjoy the racing and have a great weekend.
PS. If staying up late at night is new to you, this maybe a help. My guide to watching cycling late at night.
