The Eve of the Race

Before the race

Damiano
Caruso

The Tour de France is the most important event of the season and it requires maximum concentration and preparation. I am very happy to be part of this selection and I feel ready and motivated to do well. My role in the
More
team will be to help guide Richie Porte in the mountains. Richie will be our captain and I’m excited to try and win the Tour de France with him. Less

Alessandro
De Marchi

Finally, we are here, the key point of the season, the Tour de France. I’m happy to be back at the start of this race as I really wanted this. I wished it because I felt the need to close a circle that was still open
More
from my last participation, in terms of feelings, emotions and to really understand why I love this race. It will be a challenging and tough race, nervous and stressful for many reasons. I am ready to give the best of me for the team’s goals. What I will try to keep in mind is this: it is a bicycle race and if you want to succeed, the most fundamental thing is to have fun, to enjoy it. Less

Stefan
Küng

For sure, I’m excited but I cannot imagine now what it will be like. I’ve spoken to the other guys and they have told me it will be crazy. I’m really looking forward to it. It will be really special to wear my new Swiss
More
National Champion skinsuit on the first day in Dusseldorf. I am confident in my form so this is a big goal for me. For the rest of the race I will be there to support Richie Porte as much as possible. Less

Amaël
Moinard

I came into cycling by watching the Tour de France on TV. So the Tour represents «passion» for me and I am always excited to be part of it. I am honored to be part of this BMC Racing Team group with high expectations
More
around Richie Porte and Greg Van Avermaet. Every day will be tough and with my experience from the race, I know our leaders will need our support on every stage. With this in mind, we have a great team spirit and I think we can achieve our goals. Less

Richie
Porte

The Tour de France is the big goal of the season and it has been a great season so far. I can definitely take confidence from my races and I feel like I’m where I need to be knowing that July is when I need to perform.
More
BMC Racing Team has put a great team together around Greg Van Avermaet and me. I think we have strength in all of the areas needed. Less

Nicolas
Roche

The Tour de France is everything for a cyclist! It is what you dream of as a kid. I’m feeling nervous but I think that’s a good thing! I’m excited too. We have a great team, and one of the best riders in the world for
More
the General Classification with Richie Porte. It’s a great challenge ahead and I’m really looking forward to it. My role will be to support Richie in the high mountains and be with him as much as possible. Less

Michael
Schär

I am excited to start my seventh consecutive Tour de France with BMC Racing Team. Since my first participation in 2011 with the overall win of Cadel Evans I have a special memory of this race. We keep working hard every
More
year to make this same dream happen again and this year I feel we have a strong team behind Richie Porte. I see my role mostly to support Richie on the flat stages and sometimes in the hilly ones too. The Grand Depart in Germany will be something exciting for sure. Starting outside of France attracts mostly huge crowds and that makes it extra special. Less

Greg
Van Avermaet

I’m going into the Tour de France with the same goal as always; to win a stage. After winning a stage in 2015 and 2016, and then wearing the yellow jersey last year, it would be really special to win a third stage this
More
year. There are a couple of stages that are well-suited to me and aside from that, I’ll be there to support Richie Porte to go for the win. I think if we finished in Paris with a stage win and a good result on the General Classification, it would be a really successful Tour de France from BMC Racing Team. Less

Danilo
Wyss

The Tour de France is the most important race in the world. When I was young I went a few times to watch mountain stages with my dad so I’m proud to ride it for the second time. I’m excited. I worked hard to be ready and
More
now I’m looking forward to the start. I have good memories from my first participation in 2015 so I look forward to being back because the crowd is amazing and there is always a lot of support. We also have really strong team and my role will be to support Richie Porte on the flat and middle mountain stages. Less
