Greg Van Avermaet to lead BMC in San Sebastian

Most of the riders of BMC that will start at the Clasica San Sebastian have just finished the Tour de France and are feeling in good form.

"Six of our eight riders are coming to Clasica Ciclista San Sebastian from the Tour de France so we know their form is good and after missing out on a stage win there, they will be very motivated to go for the win in San Sebastian," said Sports Director Yvon Ledanois.

Greg Van Avermaet comes back to the race after being third in 2011 and fifth in 2016. He also suffered a much debated motorcycle incident that left him out of the race in 2015 when he was close to the victory. "I was a little sick in the last few days of the Tour de France so I'm hoping I'll be feeling good at the Clasica Ciclista San Sebastian.

"I'm motivated to do a good race and a top ten finish would be great, especially considering there are UCI WorldTour points on offer. I like the course and it's challenging which suits me," the rider concluded.

BMC's roster for the Clasica San Sebastian: Alessandro De Marchi, Amaël Moinard, Manuel Quinziato, Nicolas Roche, Michael Schär, Francisco Ventoso and Danilo Wyss.
