One-Day Races Ahead For BMC Racing Team

18. September 2010

Isbergues, France

A pair of one-day races in France (GP d'Isbergues-Pas de Calais) and Belgium (Omloop van het Houtland-Lichtervelde) lie ahead Sunday and Wednesday, respectively, for the BMC Racing Team.

House's Top 10 Finish

With several members of the BMC Racing Team headed to the world championships, the team will look to Alessandro Ballan and Danilo Wyss at GP d'Isbergues, Directeur Sportif John Lelangue said. "We know those two will be more efficient in a sprint if only 20 or so riders are left at the end," Lelangue said. Wednesday's race might suit Cole House, who finished ninth in Friday's Kampioenschap van Vlaanderen. "We'll try to be on the offensive with all our riders because they're all capable of being aggressive," Lelangue said.

Alessandro Ballan (ITA), Martin Kohler (SUI), Karsten Kroon (NED), Steve Morabito (SUI), Mauro Santambrogio (ITA), Michael Schär (SUI), Danilo Wyss (SUI), Simon Zahner (SUI).
