BMC Racing Team Announces Roster For Romandie

26. April 2014

The BMC Racing Team hopes to carry momentum gained from Cadel Evans's victory at the Giro del Trentino into next week's stage race, the Tour de Romandie, says Sport Director Yvon Ledanois.

Course Suits Van GarderenThe six-day race begins Tuesday with a 5.6-kilometer prologue, includes two major mountain stages and ends with with an 18.5-km individual time trial. "The goal is to make the best possible result with Tejay van Garderen in the general classification, but also to continue the great team spirit," he said. "Why not try to win stages as well, especially to keep the motivation that is already present in the big races?" Van Garderen said his preparations building toward the Tour de France are going well. Already this season, he has a runner-up finish at the Tour of Oman and third place and a stage win at the Volta a Catalunya to his credit. "I would like to go for as high of overall placing as possible in Romandie," van Garderen said. "I think the parcours fits my strengths well. After Romandie, I will head to altitude where I will continue my Tour preparations. I think I am right on track."
