Burghardt Credits Teammates At Harelbeke

27. March 2010

Harelbeke, Belgium

Marcus Burghardt was in the thick of the action for the BMC Racing Team Saturday at the Belgian mini-classic E3 Prijs Vlaanderen-Harelbeke.

Well-Positioned Until The End

Fabian Cancellara (Team Saxo Bank) attacked breakaway companions Tom Boonen (Quick Step) and Juan Antonio Flecha (Sky Pro Cycling Team) to win solo. Burghardt made the split when Boonen attacked. The German credited his teammates for keeping him near the front during the 203 km race. “They did a really good job,” Burghardt said. “I had mostly good position, but at the third to-last climb I no longer had enough power.” Karsten Kroon (30th) was the BMC Racing Team's best finisher.
