After a triumphant start of the new season, Tadej was once again headed to the most important modern cycling classic. Last year he put on a strong performance and finished in a very solid 7th place. It was no secret that he planned to improve this mark and reach for the very top of this prestigious classic. Gravel roads in the heart of Tuscany and its charming landscape took the reputation of Strade Bianche to another level among competitors and cycling fans around the world. The route has remained unchanged in recent years: 184 circular kilometers in the vicinity of Siena, with eleven gravel sections with a total length of 63 kilometers, gives the modern classic a special charm. The steep rise in reputation has led to Strade Bianche being known as the unofficial sixth monument in the world of cycling.

After two years, due to less stringent measures in the fight against the coronavirus, a large number of cycling enthusiasts gathered along the roads. Even Tadej managed to enjoy loud support from a good number of Slovenian fans and later repaid their effort and support with an unforgettable display of dominance.
