Kohler, Kristoff Back For Tour de Wallonie

22. July 2010

Mouscron, Belgium

BMC Racing Team's Martin Kohler and Alexander Kristoff return from injuries to start the Tour de Wallonie Saturday in Belgium.

Opportunities Abound
Kohler broke his collarbone and a bone in his wrist in a crash at the Giro d'Italia May 9. Kristoff suffered facial injuries in a crash at the Tour de Beauce June 15. BMC Racing Team Directeur Sportif John Lelangue said the five-day, 897-kilometer race offers a variety of opportunities. "For the sprints, we'll look to Kristoff, (John) Murphy and (Danilo) Wyss," Lelangue said. "Once it becomes more selective in the Ardennes, with some climbs and stages where there will be breakaways and time gaps, it will be a good place for Jeff Louder."
