BMC Racing Team will race at Vuelta a Burgos for the first time from 2-6 August, with former winner Samuel Sánchez as team leader.

Sports Director Max Sciandri said Sánchez will be supported by a strong team, some of whom will use the race as preparation for the Vuelta a Espana.

“Vuelta a Burgos is a great race to do at this point in the season as it offers a bit of everything when it comes to the stage profiles across the five days. We have a great team leader in Samuel Sanchez, who is a previous winner of the race, and we have a good opportunity with the Team Time Trial on stage 2. It’s the ideal race for a number of our riders who will use this as preparation for the Vuelta a Espãna,” Sciandri explained.

Sánchez, who won the race in 2010, is looking forward to lining up on home soil.

“The Vuelta a Burgos gives me five more race days before the Vuelta a Espãna. With the course profile and the line up of riders set to compete, it is an ideal race where I can get a lot a big workload in my legs and get used to the race pace again before the Vuelta a Espãna,” Sánchez said.

Vuelta a Burgos (2-6 August)

Rider roster: Jempy Drucker (LUX), Floris Gerts (NED), Ben Hermans (BEL), Daniel Oss (ITA), Samuel Sánchez (ESP), Peter Velits (SVK), Loïc Vliegen (BEL), Danilo Wyss (SUI).

Sports Director: Max Sciandri (ITA), Allan Peiper (AUS)
