Vegni revealed he has also been working on other races in the RCS Sport portfolio and he hopes to revive the Giro del Lazio one-day race.

The race has been given a new date on the UCI Europe Tour calendar and is scheduled for Saturday March 2 –the day before the Strade Bianche race on the dirt roads of Tuscany and a few days before the start of Tirreno-Adriatico.

Vegni –who comes from Lazio region, hopes to bring professional racing back to the Italian capital, with a section on the Appia Antica Roman cobbled road and the finish in the centre of the eternal city.

"We hope to revive what was a real Italian Classic," Vegni said. "We've still got to study and analyse if we can do the race but we've secured the date to be ready."

That looks good, but it being the day before the now more established Strade Bianche isn't ideal.

I am thinking of riding the Classics myself, either on the same day as the pro's or a day either side. Has anyone done this indepentently, rather than with a tour company or the ASO etape?

All of them? You're a brave man. A couple of friends did Flanders last year and had an absolute blast. I did L'eroica which is a very similar route to the Strade Bianchi. Was fantastic.

I did Liege - Bastogne - Liege this year and it was awesome but bloody hard. We did ours on our own but happened to be on the same day as the sportive :wink: No scope for a sweep up if you lose your minerals or have a mechanical.
