Caruso Set to Lead BMC Racing Team at Tour de Suisse7. June 2017, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
BMC Racing Team returns to the Tour de Suisse this week where Damiano Caruso will lead the team at the nine-day UCI WorldTour stage race.
Sports Director Jackson Stewart said that BMC Racing Team has multiple objectives heading into the race.
“We head to the Tour de Suisse with Damiano Caruso as our leader for the General Classification. We believe in him, and he has had this race in his sights for some time. We will also look to do well in the time trials with our specialists, Rohan Dennis and Stefan Küng,” Stewart explained.
“We are looking forward to doing our best in the home of our title sponsor, BMC Switzerland, and we believe we have a great advantage with the new BMC Teammachine SLR01, which some of our riders will race with here for the first time.”
Caruso is confident in his form ahead of the Tour de Suisse.
"My preparation for this race has been very good. I’ve put in a great block of training, especially the work that was done in the mountains at our altitude training camp. The Tour de Suisse will be very demanding, and I expect it to be a good test as we start to look ahead to July,” Caruso said.
