Silvan Dillier Scores Another Victory

13. maggio 2013

The BMC Development Team's Silvan Dillier won Sunday's final stage of Triptyque Ardennais in Belgium while teammate Jakub Novak finished third overall, Stefan Küng was fourth and the race's best young rider and Tom Bohli placed sixth.

Küng Third On Stage 2
Dillier, overall winner and best young rider at the Tour de Normandie in March, scored another victory for the BMC Development Team in its debut season. The past Swiss Under 23 national time trial and road champion won a three-up sprint about 40 seconds ahead of a chase group that included Novak, who won his own small bunch sprint at the end of the 163.8-kilometer race. "We again saw a great performance from the team," BMC Development Team General Manager Rik Verbrugghe said. "On each stage, we were taking the responsibility for the race." That strategy was also evident on Saturday's 147-km second stage when Küng attacked on the climb to the finish, only to be caught just before the line. But his heroics resulted in a third-place finish and set the stage for the team's final-day success.
