BMC happy with Belgian racing

After Danilo Wyss' fifth place in the opening stage of the Driedaagse van West-Vlaanderen, Team BMC drew a positive conclusion on the three-day affair. Directeur Sportif John Lelangue said that "Today was very tough. It was raining all day. The rain began early in the morning and has not stopped yet."

From the 140 starters only about half saw the finishing banner on Sunday. BMC's Alexandre Moos was the only rider who finished the race for the American team. But even some of the ProTour French and Belgian teams would only finish with one or two guys – testimony on how tough the race was. "Alex did a great job," Lelangue reported. ""He was in a breakaway over the cobbled climbs. And though he was eventually caught, he managed to finish in the third group."
