Sprint Doesn't Go BMC Racing Team's Way

27. March 2011

Wevelgem, Belgium

The BMC Racing Team had good numbers for the final sprint Sunday at Gent-Wevelgem but was unable to manage a top 10 placing in the Belgian classic.

Strong To The End

George Hincapie was aggressive, trying an escape on the Kemmelberg climb and Marcus Burghardt and Michael Schär drove the chase to catch a late breakaway. But designated sprinter Greg Van Avermaet lost position in the bunch sprint as Tom Boonen (Quick Step) took the win. "The team was really good today," Hincapie said. "All of our guys were always there and we still had five guys at the end. But the sprint wasn't really our thing."
