Our riders clocked thousands of hours every season, whether on-race or training, so we thought it was time to put the spotlight on them to find out a little bit more about their lives both on and off their BMC Teammachine SLR01s.

Rider profile

Name: Reto Müller

Age: 18

Where do you call home: Schaffhausen, Switzerland

Training base: Also Schaffhausen but I actually train mostly in Germany. My home is just a few kilometers from the border, and the roads in Germany are much quieter.

On the bike

Proudest achievement so far: It has to be winning gold in the Madison at the UCI World Track Championships last summer [2016]. I won it together with Marc Hirschi, and it was even more special as it was “at home” in Aigle, Switzerland.

Favorite thing about riding in the peloton: I think it is really special how we are all competitors during the race but before and after, there are some great friendships in the peloton.

Favorite race: Even though I haven't had the opportunity to do it often, I really like to race in Italy. Hopefully, I can experience more of the wonderful races in this country over the next few years.

Favorite place to train: Mallorca with its wonderful climbs and great weather.

Ultimate goal: To be a good professional cyclist and to be competitive in some of the sport's biggest races.

Off the bike

Favorite film or TV show: Inception

Favorite musician or band: I like to listen to a lot of different music, so it's hard to say just one favourite band. A band I find really cool is Twenty One Pilots.

Favorite Food: I know it's a bit cliché, but my mother's kitchen still is the very best. I always enjoy getting home and having her Lasagne in the evening.

Best way to recover after a race: Just relaxing and talking with the teammates about all the little adventures we experience during a race.

If you didn’t cycle what sport would you do? I guess I would do track and field, probably something like 400 or 800m. I really like this distance, as it is something between sprint and endurance.

Interesting fact about yourself: When I was at the UCI Track World Championships in Aigle I bought a rubiks cube to distract myself. By now, I can solve it in under 2 minutes (obviously only if everything goes perfectly!)
