Strade bianche 2012

Everybody in the cycling world knows the Tour de France, La Vuelta and the Giro d'Italia.
But the Giro d'Italia is not the only national race in Italy, there is also another one, less famous but probably harder. It's called "Strade bianche" and it brings back memories of the legendary Bartali VS Coppi races in the post ww2 Italy. That's because big part of the race takes place on unpaved roads, so races have to deal with mud, dust and exploding tyres.
The 2012 edition took place on March, 3 in Tuscany and was won again by Fabian "the Gladiator" Cancellara.
In the following video, the highlights of the 2012 edition:
