Team Time Trial To Start
Five riders who are expected to make up the BMC Racing Team’s roster for the first grand tour of the year will be on the start line Tuesday: Brent Bookwalter, Yannick Eijssen, Cadel Evans, Steve Morabito and Daniel Oss. “With this being the last race for Cadel before the Giro, it is a good opportunity for the guys to work together,” Baldato said. “Plus, the first stage is a team time trial, just like in the Giro. So it will be a good test for us.” In addition to the team time trial, the four-day race features three mountain-top finishes. Evans – third place at the Giro last year – is coming off a seventh-place finish at Vuelta al Pais Vasco where he also helped the BMC Racing Team win the team classification. “Overall, the week of racing was a really good week of race preparation,” Evans said afterwards. “I still have a bit of work to do and some room for improvement. I need to be better if I want to be competitive at the Giro.”
