Sterrati, dust and the finish on the famous Piazza del Campo. All cycling fans know immediately this is about the Strade Bianche. Liv Racing TeqFind put down another solid display during a hard race.
It was an early start for the peloton in the 9th edition of the Strade Bianche. The race over 136 kilometres contained 8 sections of gravel roads, the famous ‘settore sterrato’. With Mavi Garcia as team leader Liv Racing TeqFind went into the Italian dust battle. The peloton stayed together for a long time. The purple and black team of Giorgia Bronzini protected the Spanish champion well and brought her to the front at the most important moments.
“I am satisfied with how the team raced today. We had Mavi as leader and all girls supported her during the race. Every rider had her own task and everybody carried it out very well. We had some back luck with Caroline who punctured twice, but fought her way back to the group. We were also present in a couple of breakaways with Katia and Sabrina”, Bronzini reflected on the race.
After an exciting finale it was Demi Vollering who took the win. After all the hard work of her Liv Racing TeqFind team mates Garcia finished just outside the top-10 in a twelfth place.
