Van Avermaet to Lead BMC Racing Team at Clasica Ciclista San Sebastian1. August 2018, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
Greg Van Avermaet will be back in action this weekend after a successful Tour de France campaign as he leads BMC Racing Team’s Clasica Ciclista San Sebastian roster.
Sports Director Allan Peiper said that BMC Racing Team will be lining up with a strong group of riders in support of Van Avermaet.
“Greg will lead our team in San Sebastian. It’s a race where he has featured prominently every year and coming into it from the Tour de France, he will have the legs to compete for the top place,” Peiper explained.
“We’ll have a strong team around Greg on Saturday, including Simon Gerrans and Michael Schär who are also coming out of the Tour de France. I think everyone will be ready to support Greg to go for a good result.”
Van Avermaet is coming into the UCI WorldTour one-day race in good shape after showing strong form at the Tour de France.
“I was happy with my form at the Tour de France and I had some nice results so, I’m going into the Clasica Ciclista San Sebastian feeling motivated to do a good race. It’s a challenging course but I like it and that style suits me so if my shape is good, another top ten finish would be great,” Van Avermaet said.
