BMC Racing Team Roster: E3 Prijs Vlaanderen-Harelbeke

26. March 2014

A pair of past podium placers – Daniel Oss and Greg Van Avermaet – are part of the BMC Racing Team's roster for E3 Prijs Vlaanderen-Harelbeke on Friday.

Van Avermaet The Leader
Oss finished third in the 212.2-kilometer race last year, while Van Avermaet was third in 2008. "Greg will be our leader and Oss is coming back well," BMC Racing Team Sport Director Max Sciandri said. "Manuel Quinziato knows the course well and I know Thor Hushovd will be there for us so we have a good team here as we start approaching the bigger classics." Van Avermaet has a runner-up performance at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad to his credit this season while Hushovd's best finish has been a runner-up result on Stage 3 at Tour Méditerranéen. Oss said while he got a late start to his season, he felt good last week being part of a 17-man breakaway at Nokere Koerse. "My shape is coming up, but it is not excellent yet," he said. "I am looking forward to this race, but I can't say it will be like last year. I am motivated, I am feeling fresh and rested and am aiming to do my best."
