BMC Racing Team Head Back to Norway for Tour des Fjords27. August 2016, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
BMC Racing Team will race in Norway for the second time this month when the Tour des Fjords gets underway on Wednesday, 31 August.
Sports Director Yvon Ledanois said that BMC Racing Team is heading to Norway with a competitive line-up.
“We are heading to the race with a strong mix of riders who are all capable of producing good results. We are not going with a specific leader so we will be taking the race step by step and see where the opportunities take us. We are definitely going to Tour des Fjords with an ambitious team and I know every rider will give it their all,” Ledanois said.
Joey Rosskopf is feeling motivated about lining up at the Tour des Fjords for the first time in his career.
“I'm still feeling really excited to race going into Tour des Fjords. I've tried to do a healthy mix of resting and training since Tour du Limousin to try to prolong this good late-season form that I've found. I think I'm also coming into Fjords with a little bit of new found confidence after pulling off the win last week. Plus, this will be the first time I've ever raced in Norway, so I’m definitely looking forward to it,” Rosskopf commented.
