Dylan Teuns is one of the benefits in BMC in the Critérium du Dauphiné (world tour), the eight-day French stage race that Sunday begins with a prologue in Valence.
Teuns collected this spring, a few close results (sixth in Paris-Nice, seventh in the Brabantse pijl, eleventh in the Basque country), but a resounding performance remained. Especially liege-Bastogne-Liege (20th) and the Walloon Arrow (30th) fell against. “After a difficult first part of the year charged to I for a short break, before resuming in Hammer Stavanger (last weekend, red). It was a short and intense race and a good warm-up for the Dauphiné. We see it from day to day, but my form is good. I’m going to give it their all and try to be a nice result to get,” says the 26-year-old rider.
In addition to Teuns also get the Italian Damiano Caruso and Brent Bookwalter a protected role at BMC. The rest of the team is comprised of the New Zealander Patrick Bevin, the Swiss Tom Bohli and Danilo Wyss and the American Joey Rosskopf.
