A classic Strade Bianche shot
Michal Kwiatkowski was right in the mix and he drove a number of attacks
The conditions were anything but easy
Kwiato had the power to respond to several attacks
With 14km to go he hit out on a solo mission. Could he stay away?
He built a 30 second advantage on the final gravelled sector
And he stayed away to take a famous victory in Siena's Piazza del Campo
Greg van Avermaet and Tim Wellens claimed second and third
