Jumbo-Visma's Wout van Aert has taken the win of Strade Bianche after finishing on the podium on the last two editions of the race.

The Belgian rider was part of a strong escape group that formed in the middle of the race. He then followed every move from the others and decided to attack on the last gravel sector of the route, which allowed him to eventually cross the finish line by himself in the Piazza di Campo of Siena.

"It was extremely exhausting", Van Aert said. "I was the strongest in the last part of the race. Everyone in the leading group had good legs. I always believed in myself and in my plan. On the last sector I went full throttle and my technique worked to my advantage. It was an all-or-nothing attempt. Fortunately, it worked out very well."

"It was a goal to win this race sometime in my career. The fact that I have already succeeded makes me very proud. I live for these races. After a period of a lot of training, this naturally feels fantastic."

Van Aert had already finished in the third position of the Italian race in 2018 and 2019.
