Morabito 10th In Tour de l'Ain Prologue

10. agosto 2010

Ambérieu-en-Bugey, France

Steve Morabito powered his BMC TT01 time machine to a 10th-place finish for the BMC Racing Team in Tuesday night's three-kilometer prologue at the Tour de l'Ain.

'A Good Test'
Only three seconds separated Morabito from the winning time of Haimar Zubeldia (Team RadioShack). "It was a short prologue with a  lot of turns," Morabito said. "After the Tour de France, I've tried to take it easy, so this was a good test for my legs. I'm happy with the result but Karsten (Kroon) is in good shape and he'll be good for tomorrow." Wednesday's Stage 1 is 144 km from Lagnieu to Saint-Vulbas and includes the climb of the Col de Fay 35 km from the finish.
