BMC Racing Team Reveals Hammer Series Stavanger Line-Up23. May 2018, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
BMC Racing Team is heading to the start line in Stavanger, Norway this weekend (25 - 27 May) for the first of three Hammer Series races throughout the year.
Sports Director Jackson Stewart will lead BMC Racing Team in Stavanger after being part of the inaugural race in Limburg, the Netherlands in 2017.
“I expect Hammer Series Stavanger to be a well-organized and entertaining race just like it was in Limburg last year. It was my first time experiencing such a race format, and I think it was unique and perpetuated the excitement of road cycling throughout the race. We will be going to Stavanger with five competent riders, some of whom competed at last year’s race. It’s a well-rounded roster with Dylan Teuns and Damiano Caruso for the Hammer Climb while, Miles Scotson, Tom Bohli, and Stefan Küng are all returning to racing from different circumstances. I think we will be curious to see if we can match our level from last year in the Hammer Chase. Personally, I’m looking forward to it though, and I think Stavanger is a terrific location for such an event,” Stewart explained.
Stefan Küng, who raced in all three challenges at last year’s event, is looking forward to making his return to racing after his crash at Paris-Roubaix.
“I'm excited to get back into race mode. I've been home for quite a bit now and I have been able to train well so I am taking Hammer Series Stavanger as a step in my preparation towards my bigger goals this summer. I will try to be good there and also have some fun with the team during this unique format of bike racing. I am really happy to go to Norway for the scenery and also I think the crowds will be amazing,” Küng said.
