It was a quick break to Tuscany after spending a lot of this year working hard shooting for Craft and Etixx down at Orica Greenedge’s Pre-Season Camp and putting together the website for my new bike travel company Sommet Cycling.

I hadn’t even thought of Strade Bianche since I had been that pre-occupied with there stuff and had just booked a weekend in Lucca for myself and the good lady.

The week of our flight, we finally got the site finished and launched and all of a sudden my head cleared and I realised it was Strade Bianche just down the road from where we were staying in Lucca.

My good lady was keen to see it – lucky as I am – though I was keen to have a lazy Italian relax. I figured on something in between as I knew I would want to chase the race once there.

We would enjoy a lazy drive through Chianti from Lucca to Siena, interrupted by coffees, then watch the race in the famous 18% climb into he famous walled city and it’s famous Piazza del Campo.
