Tirreno-Adriatico, Stage 1: Good Start

9. marzo 2011

Marina di Carrara, Italy

The BMC Racing Team rode to one of its best performances in a team time trial with sixth place in Wednesday's opening stage of Tirreno-Adriatico.

Technical Stage Thursday

Led across the line by former world champion Cadel Evans, the BMC Racing Team stopped the clock 26 seconds behind the winning time of Rabobank. It was a good start to the seven-day race, said Assistant Director Fabio Baldato. "We did a lot of reconnaissance of the course, so we were well-prepared," Baldato said. "Tomorrow is very technical so we will concentrate on protecting our GC riders. But Greg Van Avermaet is strong on the little climbs so we might also try and put him in position for the sprint."

Paris-Nice, Stage 4: Wyss Top 10 Again
Belleville, France – Danilo Wyss scored his third top 10 finish at Paris-Nice Wednesday with 10th place as a four-man breakaway survived to finish 13 seconds ahead of the chasing peloton. "There was nice teamwork with Ivan Santaromita and Karsten Kroon trying to bring the break back," Wyss said. "Then Amaël (Moinard) really helped me at the end, so that was great. I hope next time we can bring the break back and I will have a chance at a better result." Thomas Voeckler (Team Europcar) took the win as Thomas de Gendt (Vacansoleil-DCM) regained the overall lead.
