History of the Race
Nova Eroica is the result of passion for a town, its territory and traditions, for courtesy and for everything that cycling and its story represent. It started out in Buonconvento, a context in which everything comes together like a magical puzzle. THANKS to everybody, to the volunteers who were directly involved, to the institutions, sponsors and, especially, to the extraordinary hospitality that comes naturally to this small, magnificent community.

In 2009, RCS changed the name of its event in order to distinguish the two Eroicas. The new name would be "Strade Bianche", in a tribute to the roads that Eroica was born to safeguard. The idea was to strengthen the message of protecting this special heritage, which is unique to the Siena countryside. However, Mother Eroica, its ideas, its world of passionate volunteers and good country people, slowly drifted into the background.

In the 2015 edition, the "Strade Bianche" became Eroica Pro but the Eroica brand was now strong, making it difficult for the two to co-exist. Indeed, the last edition of the Strade Bianche Eroica took place in 2016 without any Eroica involvement and the starting line was moved to the fortress in Siena.
