BMC Racing Team Back in Belgium for Nokere Koerse14. March 2016, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
BMC Racing Team will continue the Belgian racing season at Nokere Koerse this Wednesday, 16 March.
BMC Racing Team Sporting Manager Allan Peiper, who will act as Sports Director, said the 199.5km one-day race is a chance for the younger riders to show their form.
“We’re bringing a young team to Nokere Koerse as it really is a race where anybody can make the most of a good opportunity. It’s also a chance for these riders to gain more experience in Classics-style racing,” Peiper said.
Nokere Koerse will see Floris Gerts return to racing after fracturing his ribs at Le Samyn in early March.
“I’m not going in with any real expectations but instead see this as a good chance to ease back into racing after my crash at Le Samyn. I’m looking forward to getting back out there and racing again.”
