Weekend Races In Italy Ahead For BMC Racing Team

25. April 2013

The BMC Racing Team will compete in a pair of one-day races this weekend that serve as a final tune-up for teams and riders competing in the Giro d'Italia.

Oss Recharged After Break
Taylor Phinney is the only rider confirmed for the Giro who is on the BMC Racing Team's roster for the GP Industria & Artigianato Larciano on Saturday and Giro Della Toscana on Sunday. The remainder of the six-rider line-up consists of national road champions Martin Kohler (Switzerland) and Sebastian Lander (Denmark), plus Steve Cummings, Daniel Oss and Larry Warbasse. Oss, who has not competed since the Amstel Gold Race, said the nearly two-week layoff has been good. "I felt a bit tired after the spring season, but being at home recharged my battery," he said. "I think this weekend will be perfect for me. I don't really know my condition, but my morale and spirit is ready." BMC Racing Team Assistant Director Max Sciandri said both races will be good tests of form. "These are pretty hard races, so any guys who might be going to the Giro will know where they stand," he said.
