Arctic Race, Stage 2: Gerts Sixth14. August 2015, Setermoen (NOR) — Road Team
Floris Gerts finished sixth for the BMC Racing Team in the bunch sprint finish that capped Friday's stage of the Arctic Race of Norway.

Gerts is one of three stagiaires called up from the BMC Development Team earlier this month. Among his victories this year is a win at the Under 23 edition of Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and a stage of the Tour de Normandie.
"That is a good result for him," BMC Racing Team Sport Director Yvon Ledanois said. "He has good morale for tomorrow."
