Canadian ProTour Races Suit BMC Racing Team Well

8. September 2010

Quebec City, Canada

Expectations are high for the BMC Racing Team at the Grand Prix Cycliste ProTour Quebec-Montreal with a roster that includes former world champion Alessandro Ballan and U.S. national champion George Hincapie.

Hincapie's Return

The one-day races Friday (Quebec City) and Sunday (Montreal) feature challenging, technical circuits that suit the three riders the BMC Racing Team will support: Ballan, Karsten Kroon and Mauro Santambrogio. "A reasonable expectation would be to win one of the two races and have a guy on the podium both days," Assistant Director Michael Sayers said. Hincapie is competing in a major race for the first time since a crash Aug. 19 at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah.

Grand Prix Cycliste ProTour Quebec-Montreal Roster:
Alessandro Ballan (ITA), Chad Beyer (USA), Brent Bookwalter (USA), George Hincapie (USA), Karsten Kroon (NED), Jeff Louder (USA), Mauro Santambrogio (ITA), Danilo Wyss (SUI).
