February 25 update: PRESS RELEASE - Team Radioshack Leopard’s Swiss rider Fabian Cancellara will try to obtain an historic third victory in the Strade Bianche by Limar, to add to his previous victories in 2008 and 2012.

If Cancellara does win, he will become the first rider to have one of the unpaved sections of the “corsa degli sterri” named after him, as from this year RCS Sport/La Gazzetta dello Sport have decided to name these sections of the road after riders who complete a hat trick of race wins.

Challenging the Swiss athlete, who starts the race wearing nr.1, will be many champions of international cycling, both one day race specialists and not. Confirmed for the 7th edition of the Strade Bianche by Limar are: American Taylor Phinney and Australian Cadel Evans of BMC Racing Team, Team Movistar Spanish rider Alejandro Valverde, Slovakian Peter Sagan and Italian Moreno Moser both of Cannondale Pro Cycling team, the Italian national champion Franco Pellizotti of Androni Giocattoli, Astana Pro Team Italian rider Enrico Gasparotto and the Team Lampre Merida Italian duo Filippo Pozzato and Damiano Cunego.

Following the same route as last year, with key points on the climbs of Montalcino, Buonconvento, San Giovanni and San Giorgio for a total of 190 km the race makes no allowances for riders not on top form.
