Tour of Utah Stage 4: Saving Energy For The Two Last Stages

11. agosto 2012

The BMC Racing Team’s riders stayed quiet in the bunch during the long Stage 4 of Tour of Utah, of 220 kilometers under the heat



Keeping Strengths For The Weekend

 

From the race start, a breakaway of 6 riders escaped,  “Garmin Sharp and UnitedHealthCare chased very hard all day with the average speed  of 48 km/h” describes BMC Racing Team’s assistant sport director.  With 40 km to do, the BMC racing Team’s new trainee Mathias Flückiger crashed in a crosswind area but he suffered no serious injury and made a hard work to fight back to join the group. While the break was caught in the last km, Jake Keough (UnitedHealthCare) won the stage and Christian Vande Velde (Garmin - Sharp) kept the race lead, “our leaders remained calm in the group, keeping strengths for the hard stages coming this weekend”, said Sayers.
