BMC Racing Team will be targeting stage wins in France when they line up at Cycliste International du Haut Var-Matin (18 - 19 February) and the 2ème Tour Cycliste International La Provence (21 - 23 February).

BMC Racing Team Sports Director Yvon Ledanois said that he is confident in the abilities of every rider.

“We are not heading into these races with a particular team leader. Instead, we will look out for any opportunities that present themselves to us to go for stage victories. We are still early in the season, and the number one goal will be to help our riders continue their preparation, so they are ready to race at the highest level at the UCI World Tour races which lie ahead. I think we will have a good dynamic with both teams and I trust that every rider will give their best to achieve results.”

Brent Bookwalter is looking forward to starting 2017 with the two French races, in what will be the start of his tenth season with BMC Racing Team.

“I've raced Cycliste International du Haut Var-Matin on a few occasions. It is always demanding, and the two-day race is a solid way to measure my early season form. More and more of the peloton have already raced by the end of February, so every year these races seem to get faster. I'm excited to get stuck into the action for another year with my BMC Racing Team teammates. I hope we can continue the team’s strong start to the season and the success which has already been achieved."

Rohan Dennis, who will be joining the team for the 2ème Tour Cycliste International La Provence, said that the race provides an opportunity to get back into the racing mindset.

“For me, this race is all about getting back into the swing of European racing for 2017. It marks a return to the normal race routine, and the main goal for me will be to test out my legs. At this stage, I have felt really good since I landed in Europe so hopefully racing will confirm that.”
