2. October 2010

Ichtegem, Belgium

The BMC Racing Team looked ahead to a decisive final stage of Circuit Franco-Belge after Saturday's 158-kilometer race ended in a bunch sprint.

Burghardt Finding Form

BMC Racing Team's Alessandro Ballan and Michael Schär are two of nearly 90 riders within 20 seconds of the lead of Adam Blythe (Omega Pharma-Lotto), who won his second stage Saturday. Marcus Burghardt, who was out nearly two months due to infection, said his form has improved by the day. "Tomorrow, we'll support Alessandro and Michi and try to jump up them up to the top 10 or top five," Burghardt said. "It's really close in this race."
