Greg Van Avermaet will be the leader of BMC Racing Team at the Clasica San Sebastian. The rider will have a strong team supporting his aspirations of a final victory.

After finishing a successful Tour de France during which he wore the Yellow Jersey in eight stages, the Belgian Olympic champion is ready for the next challenge. "Greg will lead our team in San Sebastian," said Sports Director Allan Peiper. "It's a race where he has featured prominently every year and coming into it from the Tour de France, he will have the legs to compete for the top place.

"We'll have a strong team around Greg on Saturday, including Simon Gerrans and Michael Schär who are also coming out of the Tour de France. I think everyone will be ready to support Greg to go for a good result."

Van Avermaet feels in good shape after finishing the Grande Boucle. "I was happy with my form at the Tour de France and I had some nice results so, I'm going into the Clasica Ciclista San Sebastian feeling motivated to do a good race," commented the rider. "It's a challenging course but I like it and that style suits me so if my shape is good, another top ten finish would be great."
