Strade Bianche has quickly become an iconic race of the cycling season, famous for its long stretches of white gravel roads. Itโ€™s a brutal, challenging race, so it made us wonder, should the pros be using gravel bikes instead of road bikes? We went to Italy to find out, comparing both bikes on the gravel and the asphalt. This is GCN Does Science: Strade Bianche edition!
