De Marchi Set to Continue with BMC Racing Team19. September 2016, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
BMC Racing Team today announced that two-time Vuelta a Espana individual stage winner Alessandro De Marchi has renewed his contract beyond the 2016 season.
De Marchi, who joined BMC Racing Team in 2015, is one of the team’s most versatile riders, General Manager Jim Ochowicz said.
“Alessandro De Marchi is one of our most important riders when it comes to his role in our stage race and Grand Tour teams. He is a key support rider for our leaders, especially on the climbs, but is also highly capable of wining stages as we have seen with his two Vuelta a Espana stage wins and the many occasions where he has come close. Alessandro is an aggressive rider, often jumps in breakaways, and is exactly the type of rider that we want with us at BMC Racing Team,” Ochowicz explained.
It was a natural decision to stay with BMC Racing Team, De Marchi said.
“It’s a pleasure for me to continue to work and grow in such an important team like BMC Racing Team. My desire is to grow and find my ideal profile as a cyclist. I am convinced of being in the right team to achieve this goal and I hope to give even more to the team as I continue on after this season.”
In keeping with BMC Racing Team policy no other details of the contract were released.
