Strade Bianche (UCI 1.WWT) 4.March 2017

The race was held in the spectacular city of Siena, but the course was much harder than in 2016. It started well for us, when we brought Miriam in 4th position onto the first gravel section. Then she punctured, got a new wheel from Nina, but the rythm was sisturbed for Miriam. Our other hope of the day, Emilie, also suffered a puncture at a time when there where no car behind her. Miriam finished in the third group of the race, quite dissaponted, while former team mate Elisa Longo Borghini (Wiggle High 5) won the race.
