All BMC MTB Racing Riders selected for the European Championships26. April 2016, Grenchen, Switzerland — Melanie Leveau — MTB Team
The five riders of the BMC MTB Racing Team will be present in Husqvarna, Sweden for the upcoming UEC European Championships.
While Julien Absalon, current European Champion, had already been selected, things were still to be decided for the four Swiss riders of the team. Swiss Cycling revealed today the list of seven Elite riders selected for the event taking place from the 5th to the 8th of May. Four of them are part of the BMC squad.
Martin Fanger, Lukas Flückiger, Lars Forster and Reto Indergand will be wearing the red and white jersey of the Swiss National Team at the Elite race that will take place on Sunday the 8th of May. Three days earlier, Lars Forster, 6th of the opening round of the UCI MTB World Cup, will take part in the Team Relay together with an Elite woman, an U23 and a Junior rider.
Team Manager Alex Moos is of course delighted to see his entire team chosen to represent Switzerland and France. As usual, ambitions will be high and the goal is already very clear: “Members of the BMC MTB Racing Team have won the European Championships four times already. We are going there to win a fifth title.”
