Ronde van het Groene Hart: Weather Likely A Factor

19. maart 2010

Pijnacker, Netherlands

Sunday’s edition of Ronde van het Groene Hart shapes up to be as much a battle against weather as it is will be against the competition for the BMC Racing Team. Rain and wind is forecast for the 207.4 km Dutch semi-classic.

Good Positioning Important

“We will do our best to place as many riders in the front echelons that are sure to form,” BMC Racing Team Assistant Director Mike Sayers said. “At that point, we will try and place a guy on the podium.” In Nokere-Koerse Wednesday, the BMC Racing Team (John Murphy, sixth; Danilo Wyss, ninth; Alexander Kristoff, 13th) placed three in the top 15. Sayers said illness might prevent Martin Kohler from starting.
