BMC Racing Team Targets Eneco Tour Success16. September 2016, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
BMC Racing Team will bring a strong and versatile team to the last UCI WorldTour stage race of the season when Eneco Tour gets underway on Monday 19, September.
The seven stages provide multiple opportunities for BMC Racing Team, Sports Director Fabio Baldato said.
“Eneco Tour is the last UCI WorldTour stage race of the season so it’s an important race for the team. We have multiple objectives going into the race including the General Classification with Greg Van Avermaet, who was on the podium last year, and the team time trial. In addition, Rohan Dennis is lining up with fantastic form as he showed at Tour of Britain and he’ll be targeting the individual time trial, as well as being our other protected rider alongside Van Avermaet,” Baldato explained.
“We are always motivated to do well when there is a team time trial on the program, especially as this will serve as a warm up for the upcoming UCI Road World Championships.”
Dennis says the time trials will play an important role in the General Classification.
“Since the Tour of Britain I have been feeling pretty good. I would love to carry this form into Eneco Tour and hopefully get an opportunity for a stage or maybe even the General Classification. The TT and TTT will help make those objectives possible but everyone knows that Eneco Tour can throw a few curve balls at you so the road stages are just as important with making time up on others for GC.”
