Jempy Drucker and Stefan Küng to command BMC at RideLondon

Jempy Drucker and Stefan Küng will lead BMC at the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic. The support of the team to the riders will depend on the way the race develops.

"We go into the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic with two protected riders," said Sports Director Yvon Ledanois. "One is Stefan Küng who just finished his first Tour de France and is looking very strong.

"He will be protected in case of attacks on the hilly part of the race. The other will be Jempy Drucker, who won here two years ago, and who we know can be a strong contender if the race comes down to a sprint. Of course, it depends on how the race develops but I definitely think that we can ride aggressively and be present."

Drucker is excited to come back to a race he already won in 2015. "It's always nice to go back to a race that you have won and I have really good memories from Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic," commented the rider.

"It's a super nice race and always an awesome crowd on the side of the road. I really like going back every year so I'm looking forward to the race and hopefully I can get a good result. I'm definitely coming in motivated and confident after my win at the VOO Tour de Wallonie this week."

The complete BMC roster for the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic: Manuel Quinziato, Miles Scotson, Nathan Van Hooydonck, Francisco Ventoso and Loïc Vliegen.
