BMC Racing Team Sends Bookwalter To U.S. Nationals
CORVOS_00017298-057 Brent Bookwalter will represent the BMC Racing Team at this weekend’s USA Cycling national championships in Chattanooga, Tenn., and is the only returning medalist from last year’s individual time trial.

Time Trial Saturday; Road Race Monday
Last year, Bookwalter finished third behind winner David Zabriskie (Garmin-Sharp) and teammate Tejay van Garderen. Van Garderen opted to rest after his victory at the Amgen Tour of California Sunday while Zabriskie crashed and broke his collarbone during time trial warm-up at the Amgen Tour. Bookwalter said the course for Saturday’s 30.9-kilometer race against the clock doesn’t exactly play to his strengths but he is feeling good about his form. “We did a great week in California and it breeds confidence going into nationals,” Bookwalter said. “I feel really good and strong, not too fatigued or weathered. I wish I had a couple teammates there, but I’m excited and motivated to race in my home region of the country.” The Asheville, N.C., resident said he will take a wait-and-see approach in Mondays’ 161.9-kilometer road race. “The race can definitely be won without a big, powerful team,” he said.
