BMC Racing Team's Kristoff Third In Philadelphia

6. June 2010

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Alexander Kristoff sprinted to a third-place finish for the BMC Racing Team Sunday at the TD Bank Philadelphia International Cycling Championships, the largest one-day race in the United States.

Patient To The End
"I had an open shot at 250 meters and could've jumped, but my legs were cramping and there was a lot of wind," Kristoff said. "At 50 meters, it opened up I had open road but it was too late and my legs were too soft to pass two guys." Matthew Goss (HTC-Columbia) won ahead of Peter Sagan (Liquigas). BMC Racing Team's Chris Barton, Chad Beyer, John Murphy and Jackson Stewart all figured in breakaways at some point during the 250-kilometer race. "The whole team rode spectacularly," Assistant Director Michael Sayers said. "For only having five guys, I thought they were the best team in the race."
