Belgian Races Offer Different Opportunities

13. september 2010

Chaudfontaine, Belgium

Be it a race of expected attrition (GP de Wallonie) or one more for the sprinters (Kampioenschap Van Vlaanderen), the BMC Racing Team fields a qualified roster for both Belgian races this week.

Familiar Territory

Flèche Wallonne winner Cadel Evans will enjoy familiar roads in GP de Wallonie Wednesday after riding solidly in his return to racing last weekend. "I'm pretty sure Cadel will test himself so I'm confident that we can try something with him or Martin Kohler," BMC Racing Team Directeur Sportif John Lelangue said. Friday's race may be one for sprint specialist Alexander Kristoff, who finished fifth at GP de Fourmies Sunday.
