BMC Racing Team Reveals Liège-Bastogne-Liège Roster

19. april 2013

The BMC Racing Team announced its roster for Sunday's Liège-Bastogne-Liège that includes world road champion Philippe Gilbert and Greg Van Avermaet, who has posted a half-dozen top 10 finishes in spring classics and semi-classics.

Gilbert A Winner In 2011
The 261.5-kilometer race in Belgium caps the Ardennes classics. Gilbert won Liège-Bastogne-Liège in 2011 to go along with a third-place finish in 2010 and fourth in 2009. He finished 15th in Flèche Wallonne on Wednesday. Van Avermaet did not compete in Flèche Wallonne, but has placed a career-best seventh at this race (in 2011) in two previous starts.

Comments from BMC Racing Team President/General Manager Jim Ochowicz, Directeur Sportif John Lelangue and Gilbert and Van Avermaet from a pre-race press conference Friday in Chaudfontaine, Belgium, are available on the team's Audio Line.
