The BMC Racing Team announced its roster for the 112th edition of Paris-Roubaix on Wednesday, the eve of its pre-race press conference.
Roster Nearly Identical To 2013
Ronde van Vlaanderen and Omloop Het Nieuwsblad runner-up Greg Van Avermaet starts Sunday’s race for the sixth time and and will be joined by Norwegian national road champion Thor Hushovd, an 11-time starter and podium finisher in 2009 and 2010. Two-time Under 23 Paris-Roubaix winner and Dubai Tour champion Taylor Phinney will make his third start, Marcus Burghardt his ninth, and two others make their seventh: Manuel Quinziato and Swiss national road champion Michael Schär. Danilo Wyss is a five-time starter and Silvan Dillier, the only one of the eight who was not on the BMC Racing Team’s roster for Paris-Roubaix last year, will take the start in Compiègne for the first time.
