Strada Bianche - Do they prep the roads at all?
I know it's a softies question! Rode some sections of the race route a couple of weeks back and some of the sections made me wonder if they run something over the surface before the race comes through to smooth them out a bit!? The sections where the surface is like a washboard were a nightmare to ride. I know that's the point but just wondering if my experience was the same as the pros. I'm <10 stone and so not the ideal build but it wasn't much fun for sure. We changed our route to stick to tarmac a bit more! Rode 28mm tyres but still awful.
