BMC Racing Team Roster For Gran Piemonte

25. September 2012

BMC Racing Team will have a competitive squad for Thursday's Gran Piemonte, Assistant Director Fabio Baldato said.



A Selective Race

 

Baldato said the 188-kilometer race should be quiet until the last 50 km. "The road is new, from Fossano to Biella, and the climb of Favaro twice before the finish should make the selection," Baldato said. The BMC Racing Team has many cards to play and a competitive team, among which Greg Van Avermaet was runner-up of the race last year. "Our guys are in strong condition, riders as Van Avermaet, Ballan and Santambrogio have good legs and we should do something in the finish with one of them, depending to the race situation," said Baldato.
