Tour of Qatar, Stage 4: Van Avermaet Shines

10. febbraio 2011

Al Kharaitiyat, Qatar

Greg Van Avermaet had his best performance for the BMC Racing Team Thursday at the Tour of Qatar, figuring in the main breakaway before finishing 10th on the stage.

Trying To Help Burghardt

BMC Racing Team's Marcus Burghardt joined Van Avermaet in the breakaway and remains ninth overall, 1:31 behind Mark Renshaw (HTC-Highroad), who won the stage and took the race lead. Van Avermaet said strong winds made for a hard day. "It was not easy for me to get in the first group," he said. "We were riding in the breakaway to help Marcus on the G.C. But Garmin-Cervélo was not there, so the group came back. I felt pretty good to stay in the first group until the finish. It was a nice, but hard day for me."
