Dylan Teuns is the team leader for BMC in liège-Bastogne-Liège Sunday. The Observer is aiming for a spot in the top ten after his disappointing Flèche wallonne, where he Wednesday until the 30th.
“Dylan is ready, strong and motivated”, says directeur sportif Valerio Piva confirmed in a press release from BMC. “He will get support of Damiano Caruso and Alessandro De Marchi, and we with Simon Gerrans is a former winner in the grades which have an important role to play for Dylan. We don’t have the absolute favourite, but our team is ready and we can with this team a good result chasing. Everyone is motivated to be a good game to drive to pay homage to Andy Rihs.”
Dylan Teuns was last year, third in the Flèche wallonne, Wednesday was a 30th place. That negative result should motivate him to do better Sunday. “I had Wednesday not good legs, but my form is definitely in order, because I fought with the front to the last hundred meters. My best result was a seventh place in Liège in 2016 and last year I was responsible for quite a bit of work for Greg Van Avermaet. I try to have Sunday be a good match to drive, especially for Andy Rihs.”
