BMC Racing Team makes a return to racing in Switzerland this week with GP du Canton d’Argovie providing the first test on Thursday, June 8.
Sports Director Jackson Stewart said that BMC Racing Team will be heading to the start line with a motivated eight-rider roster and multiple options.
“We are always excited to race in the home country of our title sponsor, BMC Switzerland and for some of our riders, it is the perfect opportunity to finalize their preparation for the Tour de Suisse. We will mostly look to Silvan Dillier and Stefan Küng to be our primary finishers as they are very familiar with the race but, as a one-day race, and with the depth of our team, we will have a varied race strategy.”
Silvan Dillier is looking forward to racing on home soil following his first Grand Tour stage win at the Giro d’Italia.
“I came out of the Giro d’Italia feeling in good condition and with a lot of confidence, so I am really looking forward to GP du Canton d’Argovie. I want to put in my best performance possible as the race practically takes place on my doorstep in Gippingen,” Dillier explained.
