"Everyone will have a opportunity to make a move and try something for themselves. We are heading there without any pressure but we are motivated to ride an aggressive race.”

A strong eight-rider BMC Racing Team squad will line at the German UCI WorldTour one-day race EuroEyes Cyclassics this Sunday, 21 August.

 

Sports Director Fabio Baldato said that the team has multiple options going into the race.

 

“We’re not lining up at this race with a specific team leader. Everyone will have a opportunity to make a move and try something for themselves. We are heading there without any pressure but we are motivated to ride an aggressive race.

 

“This is definitely a fast Classic race and we are taking a group of experienced riders, including Marcus Burghardt, Alessandro de Marchi and Daniel Oss, who will be able to take advantage of any opportunities. Rick Zabel will also give us an option in the sprint and for both himself and Burghardt, racing on home soil will give them extra motivation,” Baldato said.

 

Marcus Burghardt is looking forward to lining up at a WorldTour race on home soil.

 

“For me the EuroEyes Cyclassics in Hamburg is very special because it’s the only WorldTour race in Germany. I think after last week in Norway I had a good preparation and I hope to show something good when we go up the Waseberg for the last time. I think if you can get into a smaller group of about eight to ten riders after that point then there is the possibility of going all the way to the finish and making a good result,” Burghardt commented.

 

Rider roster: 

Marcus Burghardt (GER), Alessandro de Marchi (ITA), Daniel Oss (ITA), Joey Rosskopf (USA), Manuel Senni (ITA), Peter Velits (SVK), Loïc Vliegen (BEL), Rick Zabel (GER)
