Strade Bianche will start tomorrow with eight Dutch people. This is evident from the list of participants as released by the organization of the Tuscan one-day race. That is one more than last year, when seven Dutch people appeared at the start.

Most eyes are on Mathieu van der Poel. The Alpecin-Fenix ​​leader makes his debut in the dirt road race, but is nevertheless noted as the top favorite by the bookmakers. He is the only Dutchman in the selection of Alpecin-Fenix.

The selection of Team Jumbo-Visma delivers the most Dutch with three riders. Koen Bouwman, Bert-Jan Lindeman and Antwan Tolhoek start at the yellow-black formation in the service of leader Wout van Aert. Cyclo-cross rider Joris Nieuwenhuis makes an appearance at Team Sunweb.

Routier Pieter Weening will make his first competition kilometers at Trek-Segafredo for his new employer. Corné van Kessel drives his first race in the shirt of Circus-Wanty Gobert. He replaces Maurits Lammertink, who dropped out at the last minute due to a clavicle fracture during reconnaissance. Tom-Jelte Slagter drives the race in French salaried employment, on behalf of his B&B Hotels-Vital Concept team.

Tomorrow afternoon, 168 riders will leave for a race of 184 kilometers at a quarter to two. The live TV broadcast on Sporza and Eurosport starts at 4:50 PM. The arrival is expected around half past six.
