  • Celebrate 20 years of L’Eroica on the now iconci Strade Bianche – Back in 1997 the Strade Bianche pro race was still ten years away, but the
    founder Giancarlo Brocci and a bunch of loyal retrogrouches wanted to preserve the iconic white gravel Tuscan roads. Honoring a cycling era that shaped decades or Italian culture and has now made a resurgence to bring us all back the gravel bike, we’ll give credit where it is due to L’Eroica. Today Eroica events take place in 7 other countries around the globe, but from Sept 28-Oct 2 it’s time to get back the original. And to celebrate 20 years, they’ve worked with Santini on a  limited edition tops. Inspired by the color of the local Chianti wine and the historic roads of Tuscany, you have to participate to get one.
