BMC Racing Team Eyes Breakaways At Circuit de la Sarthe

4. April 2010

Sablé-sur-Sarth, France

Absent a sprinter in its line-up for the Circuit de la Sarthe, the BMC Racing Team aims to make the most of breakaways when the French stage race begins Tuesday.

Louder Top 10 Last Year

Four road races and an individual time trial comprise the 639 km event. BMC Racing Team Director Sportif John Lelangue said with only six-man rosters, it can be a difficult race to control. “For us, it's more of going in the breakaways and trying to take qualifications in the intermediate sprints – then making the difference in the time trial,” he said. Jeff Louder finished 10th here a year ago and Steve Morabito was 11th.
