BMC Racing Team Continues Classics Preparation in Belgium13. March 2017, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
Seven of BMC Racing Team’s eight-rider Dwars door West Vlaanderen roster, including runner-up Silvan Dillier, will be back racing in Belgium on Wednesday (March 15) at the Danilith Nokere Classic.
Sporting Manager Allan Peiper said that the one-day race will be an opportunity for the riders to continue their preparation for the upcoming Classics.
“The Danilith Nokere Classic is not only another step in the necessary build up for races such as Tour of Flanders and Paris - Roubaix, but it also allows some of our younger riders to gain extra race practice and have the opportunity to try and win a tough, early season race.”
Silvan Dillier is eager to back up his performance from Dwars door West Vlaanderen.
“I was really happy with the way I was riding last weekend, but when you are that close to the top of the podium, it’s always a little disappointing. I feel strong right now, and my form is where I want it to be at this point in the season so, I can take a lot of confidence from that. I think I have recovered well and I’m motivated to give 100% and go for the win again if I get the opportunity.”
