Richie Porte and Tejay van Garderen will race together for the first time in BMC Racing Team when they line up at Volta Ciclista a Catalunya from 21-27 March.

After testing their legs at Paris-Nice (Porte) and Tirreno-Adriatico (van Garderen), the two riders will headline BMC Racing Team’s roster, BMC Racing Team Sports Director Yvon Ledanois said.

“With Richie and Tejay set to captain the team in Cataluyna, we’re going in very motivated. They’ll be supported by a strong group of riders and it will be a good opportunity for the two of them to race together for the first time.”

Porte and van Garderen are looking forward to their first race in the same team.

“We’ve trained together a fair bit so it’s nice to finally be able to race together. It’s also a good chance to get some more race days in the legs following Paris-Nice,” Porte said.

“It’s a race that suits Richie and I well and we’re going in with a strong team. I didn’t get the opportunity to really test myself on the climbs at Tirreno-Adriatico with the cancellation of the queen stage, so it will be good to do so in Catalunya,” van Garderen explained.
