BMC is ready for the next one-day race of the WorldTour Calendar, EuroEyes Cyclassics. A versatile group of riders will be facing the German race.

The main objective of BMC was to select riders that could have options of winning, depending of how the race develops. "We have seen in the past that this race is one for the sprinters and if this is once again the case, we have Jempy Drucker on our roster who, as we saw at the Prudential RideLondon Surrey Classic, is in good shape," said Sports Director Fabio Baldato.

"We also have riders like Silvan Dillier, Loïc Vliegen and Manuel Quinziato who we know can race hard and can go with any strong moves on the circuit. Of course, we also have Greg Van Avermaet lining up, and he is coming into the race, as he always does, in strong form and will be motivated to score some more UCI WorldTour points if the opportunity presents itself."

For Olympic champion Greg Van Avermaet, this is a chance to continue improving his shape ahead of the rest of the season. "My shape was really good at Binck Bank Tour, and my legs were where I wanted them to be," he explained.

"I was really happy with how I raced, so I am feeling good heading into the next UCI WorldTour one-day race. For me, my main goals for the rest of the season are still to come, but this will be a good opportunity to continue to build my form and keep that race feeling in my legs heading into next month."

Jempy Drucker also wants to test his shape in the race. "It was a tough week of racing at Binck Bank Tour, but I felt like my form was there and that I was able to work hard for the team," he commented. "My legs have been feeling good, and I know that my speed is there, so I am motivated to produce a good result at EuroEyes Cyclassics if the race comes down a bunch sprint."

BMC's roster for the EuroEyes Cyclassics: Silvan Dillier, Jempy Drucker, Floris Gerts, Amaël Moinard, Manuel Quinziato, Greg Van Avermaet, Loïc Vliegen and Danilo Wyss (SUI).
