Circuit Franco-Belge, Stage 1: Bunch Finish

30. September 2010

Mouscron, Belgium

All eight riders on the BMC Racing Team safely finished in the leading group Thursday as the 184-kilometer opening stage of Circuit Franco-Belge ended in a sprint finish.

Motivated Field

A four-man breakaway gained a five-minute lead before being brought back. Adam Blythe (Omega Pharma-Lotto) took the win. "It seemed like the field was super-motivated for a late-season race," said BMC Racing Team's Chad Beyer. "It took forever for a break to go." Assistant Director Jacques Michaud said Stages 3 and 4 will be pivotal for the BMC Racing Team's general classification hopes.
