BMC Racing Team’s Kristoff 10th at Scheldeprijs

7. April 2010

Schoten, Belgium

The 10th place finish Alexander Kristoff scored for the BMC Racing Team Wednesday at Scheldeprijs capped a positive day that served as a final tune-up for the team’s Paris-Roubaix contenders.

‘A Good Result’

The BMC Racing Team was first represented by Jackson Stewart in a breakaway that gained a maximum lead of six minutes before being caught inside the final 10 km. From there, Assistant Director Michael Sayers said it was nice to see Kristoff mixing it up in the final sprint that was won by Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Transitions). “For how old Kristoff is (22) and where he’s at, that’s a good result. I’m glad he went for it,” Sayers said.

Saving For Sunday
Sayers said most satisfying was how well the BMC Racing Team stayed out of trouble during the 205 km race. “We had no crashes, which, in a race that’s notorious for massive pile-ups, was a real positive thing.” U.S. national road champion George Hincapie said he also accomplished his goal by finishing safely in the lead group. “I was a bit tired from Sunday but I just wanted to conserve energy today and get some good training in,” he said.
