A guide to watching Strade Bianche live on Saturday 6th March

Strade Bianche will take place on Saturday 6th March 2021, a return to its usual March slot after last year's edition was pushed to August due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 15th edition for the men and seventh edition for women, despite being a race still firmly in its infancy, has already entered cycling folklore and made for unmissable viewing thanks to an intriguing parcours across the picturesque Tuscan countryside, battling the excellent white roads that dissect the many fields and vineyards.

The men's race will be 184km, while the women's is 134km.

Last year's winner was Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma), who cruised to a solo victory ahead of Davide Formolo (UAE Team Emirates) and Max Schachmann (Bora-Hansgrohe).

In the women's race, Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott) made it two titles in two years with a miraculous pursuit of Mavi Garvia (Ale BTC Ljubljana), who managed to hold on for second ahead of Leah Thomas (Equipe Paule Ka).

How to watch Strade Bianche 2021

As per usual, Eurosport will be providing live coverage of the race. GCN subscribers will also be able to watch a similar level of coverage.

It is likely that if you have access to the Eurosport player and app online, you will be able to watch more of the race than is set to be broadcast on television, although that won't be confirmed until nearer the time.

If you're content with whatever is being broadcast on-air, Eurosport will come as standard with most digital television packages such as Sky and Virgin Media.

For the Eurosport Player, you can sign up for a subscription that is either £39.99 per year of £6.99 per month here.

Alternatively, you could invest in the GCN+ service which also costs £39.99 but is also being offered at an early bird price of £19.99 here. You can only watch via the GCN Race Pass app online but there are no ads, choices of commentary and guaranteed coverage of the women's race too.

Finally, if you are yet to bow to the corporate overlords at GCN or Eurosport, you can just keep abreast of the day's racing via social media.
