BMC Racing Team will continue its Classics campaign in Belgium this week with Greg Van Avermaet as captain for the three one-day races; Dwars door Vlaanderen, E3 Harelbeke and Gent Wevelgem.

 

Van Avermaet is hoping to replicate his Omloop Het Nieuwsblad success.

 

"It's nice to already have a win on Belgian soil this season. No matter where you line up, you're racing to win, but racing in Belgium motivates me even more. My legs are really good at the moment and the guys have been doing an incredible job to support me so I'm feeling confident," Van Avermaet said.

 

BMC Racing Team Sports Director Fabio Baldato said the team is motivated to win.

 

“We're well and truly into the season now so it's no longer about getting race days in the legs. The hard work is paying off and as we've seen, Greg and the other riders are in great shape. I think we can see some nice results this week."

Stefan Küng will make his 2016 debut at Dwars door Vlaanderen after a quiet start to the season recovering from Epstein-barr virus (mononucleosis).

 

"I'm really looking forward to racing again when I line up at Dwars door Vlaanderen. For me, the focus will be on getting some race days in the legs and seeing how my form is," Küng said.

Rider roster: Tom Bohli (SUI), Marcus Burghardt (GER), Floris Gerts (NED), Stefan Küng (SUI), Michael Schär (SUI), Greg Van Avermaet (BEL), Loïc Vliegen (BEL), Rick Zabel (GER)
