BMC Development Team at Swiss National U23 Championships10. September 2016, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Development Team
Five BMC Development Team riders will line up at the Swiss National U23 Road Race Championships tomorrow, Sunday 11 September.
We caught up with Sports Director Jens Blatter to find out what he thinks about the riders lining up and also what it means to race for a national title.
"For sure this is an important race for our five riders as well as the team as a whole. it is always a huge honour to have a rider wearing a national champion’s jersey on the team. This weekend It will also be special to race in the home of our sponsor, BMC Switzerland. For us, it’s like coming home.”
“We will try everything to defend the Swiss U23 Champion’s jersey of Patrick Müller but it will not be an easy task as I think that everybody will be looking to us but I believe in our Swiss riders racing. All five guys have the potential to win and I think there is a good team spirit amongst them and that will make a big difference race over the 170km parcours,” Blatter said.
