Circuit de la Sarthe, Stage 1: Morabito In Breakaway

6. aprile 2010

Varades, France

A fast, aggressive stage opened the Circuit de la Sarthe Tuesday, highlighted by Steve Morabito’s representation of the BMC Racing Team in the day’s longest breakaway.

Wednesday A Dual Stage Day

Morabito was among 10 riders who escaped the field after an hour-and-a-half of racing. But his group never gained more than 90 seconds and was caught 60 km from the end of the 185 km race that Luis Leon Sanchez (Caisse d'Epargne) won in a bunch sprint. “Without a real sprinter here, we didn’t have a chance to contend at the end,” BMC Racing Team Assistant Director René Savary said. “But everyone feels good and looks forward to tomorrow’s dual stage of a road race and then a time trial.”
