A strong six-rider BMC Racing Team squad are heading to the Aviva Tour of Britain next week and will be looking to challenge for results over the eight-day stage race.
Sports Director Jackson Stewart said that the team will be targeting stage wins when the race gets underway on Sunday, 4 September.
“We are lining up at the Aviva Tour of Britain with stage victories in mind and will see how the General Classification develops from there. We have a motivated and talented team racing in Britain and, as we have been doing all season, we will try and be active in the breaks and will be looking for success daily,” Stewart said.
Rohan Dennis is looking forward to rejoining his BMC Racing Team teammates in the peloton after returning from Rio.
“I'm feeling good at the moment. I had some time of after Rio and the first four days back on the bike felt like I belonged in a junior category but since then things have been back on track and I'm looking forward to testing the legs out in a race like the Aviva Tour of Britain."
"The time trial is definitely a target of mine and I would love to win it. Plus if I'm still up there on the General Classification by then it could really set me up for the overall victory,” Dennis added.
