Kroon Will Lead BMC Racing Team At Tour de l'Ain

7. August 2010

Ambérieu-en-Bugey, France

The BMC Racing Team enters the Tour de l'Ain with its efforts centered around Karsten Kroon, who is enjoying good form coming off post-Tour de France criteriums.

House's Stagiaire Debut
The five-day French stage race begins Tuesday with a three-kilometer prologue, followed by four road races. BMC Racing Team Directeur Sportif John Lelangue said Kroon will surely be one of the contenders because it is always a selective race. "It is not a race where you have to have a big strategy around controlling the field because every team only has six riders," Lelangue said. The race marks the stagiaire debut of American Cole House.
