Tour of Austria Starts Sunday For BMC Racing Team

2. July 2010

Bludenz, Austria

The BMC Racing Team will bring an aggressive mindset to the Tour of Austria when the mountainous eight-day, 1,141-kilometer stage race begins Sunday.

Race For Opportunists

Among the most challenging stages will be the Stage 4 finish on the Grossglockner, Austria's steepest Alpine slope. "This is a difficult race," BMC Racing Team Directeur Sportif John Lelangue said. "We go there without a clear leader, so the race will be totally open for the guys. They just have to find good opportunities." Included on the BMC Racing Team roster is Simon Zahner, recent runner-up at the Swiss road nationals.
