Dillier Back in Action on Home Soil7. June 2016, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
Silvan Dillier will make his return to racing on home soil at the GP du canton d’Argovie on Thursday 9 June, having recovered from a fractured finger sustained during the Giro d’Italia.
Dillier will be joined largely by BMC Racing Team’s Tour de Suisse team, Sports Director Max Sciandri said.
“Five of the riders lining up this Thursday make up our Tour de Suisse team so it’s a good one-day hit out for them ahead of the UCI WorldTour race. Silvan is really motivated as it’s his home race and we have all five of our Swiss riders on the roster which is a nice chance for them.”
After a month off racing, Dillier is eager to re-join the peloton.
“The GP du canton d’Argovie is my home race and I know every meter of the parcours. I will know half of the fans on the side of the road and they would like to see me win as much as I would like to! My recovery from my fractured finger is going well and I’ve had some good training at home since the Giro d’Italia.”
