Three Days of De Panne Opportunity For Sprinters

28. March 2011

Middelkerke, Belgium

The BMC Racing Team's fast finishers will have an opportunity to shine at Three Days of De Panne, which begins Tuesday.

Quinziato Returns

BMC Racing Team Assistant Director Fabio Baldato said the race will favor sprinters Alexander Kristoff, John Murphy, Danilo Wyss and Simon Zahner. Manuel Quinziato makes his return following an infection brought on by the cold at Tirreno-Adriatico. "I was disappointed not to be at races like Milan-San Remo and Gent-Wevelgem, but the team has been supportive," Quinziato said. "I got a nice e-mail from George Hincapie who told me the year he was second at Paris-Roubaix, he was sick for a week after San Remo. So he told me not to stress too much."
