At Strade Bianche in March there was a leading group containing cycling's biggest stars – the world champion, the last two Tour de France winners, stars of cyclocross and the classics – and Michael Gogl.
The 27-year-old Austrian, who rides for Qhubeka Assos, was the big surprise in one of the best races of the year – although his performance on the white dirt roads of Tuscany did not come as such a surprise to him and his team.
As the Giro prepares to tackle the white dirt roads on stage 11, we relive Strade Bianche with Gogl.
