Adam Blythe, Revolution, January 5 2013

Adam Blythe's bid for a place in BMC's classics team continued with a strong sprint at the end of stage five in Qatar today. The stage was won by Mark Cavendish who leads the race, Blythe is in fourth overall.

"I would love to ride the classics to be honest, I'd love to get in that team and try to do a job," Blythe told Cycling Weekly after the stage. "[The Tour of Flanders] appeals most to me. That and I'd love to do [Paris-] Roubaix with Taylor [Phinney] because I think he will be up there this year. I think he knows what he wants to do there."
