Martin Fanger to ride the Cape Epic with Lukas Flückiger

12. March 2014

The BMC Mountainbike Racing Team regrets to announce that Ralph Näf will not be able to compete in the 2014 Absa Cape Epic alongside Lukas Flückiger. Näf sustained an injury to his quadriceps a few weeks ago during training, and it has turned out to be more severe than anticipated.

"Ralph (Näf) is not yet able to ride at full power, and we don't want to risk an injury going into the World Cup season" explains the team's sportive director Alex Moos. "Lukas Flückiger will instead team up with Martin Fanger, one of our younger riders. It is Martin's first Cape Epic and a fabulous opportunity for him to experience multi-stage racing with the
Martin Fanger top in the world. Lukas Flückiger has amassed lots of experience over the years and they are both really motivated and prepared to race, we remain optimistic!"
