Santambrogio Fifth At GP Ouest France-Plouay

22. August 2010

Plouay, France

Mauro Santambrogio continued his late-season charge of strong finishes for the BMC Racing Team Sunday with fifth in the sprint finish of GP Ouest France-Plouay. The Italian has four top 10 placings this month, including runner-up at Coppa Agostoni.

Aggressive Near The End

BMC Racing Team Assistant Director Fabio Baldato said Santambrogio showed good aggression in the final kilometers. "He tried in the last climb with another seven or eight riders, but his group was brought back," Baldato said. "I'm happy that the team did a good job." The last of eight riders in the break was reeled in with one kilometer to go, setting up a furious bunch sprint that was won by Matthew Goss (HTC-Columbia).
