BMC Racing Team to Line Up at the Inaugural Tacx Pro Classic11. October 2017, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
BMC Racing Team is heading to the start line for the final time in Europe this season at the inaugural Tacx Pro Classic on Saturday, 14 October.
BMC Racing Team Sports Director Valerio Piva said the weather will play a crucial role in the evolution of the race.
“While this is a new race for 2017, we know the area well, and the wind will definitely be a key factor in the outcome of the race especially on the open roads. We aren’t going in with a specific leader, and we know that every rider is capable of seizing opportunities as they arise. Plus I think both Floris Gerts, and Bram Welten, who we know have fast finishes, will be motivated about riding in the Netherlands,” Piva said.
Floris Gerts is looking forward to racing on home soil at the Tacx Pro Classic.
“For me, there are not many races that are so close to home. It has been a long season, so this extra boost will be nice. I’m ready to give it one last go in Europe before leaving for my last race in China,” Gerts explained.
