BMC Racing Team Looks To Moinard At Plouay

26. August 2011

Plouay, France

A motivated Amaël Moinard will lead the BMC Racing Team Sunday in GP de Plouay, a 248.3-kilometer, one-day race in his home country of France.

Spoil The Bunch Sprint

"I like this race and I hope to be able to follow some good moves in the final," Moinard said. "Of course, it's often a sprinter who wins this race, but sometimes it's different and some good attacks could survive to the finish. With guys like Michi (Schär) and Steve (Morabito), we have a good team that can try something without waiting for a sprint." BMC Racing Team Assistant Director Fabio Baldato said Moinard has good form, coming off his role of helping Cadel Evans win the Tour de France. "He's focused and motivated and the course suits him," Baldato said.
