BMC Racing Team today confirmed the re-signing of Joey Rosskopf beyond the 2016 season, following his victory at the Tour du Limousin.

“It is a pleasure to announce that Joey Rosskopf will remain with BMC Racing Team. Joey has been developing well in the two seasons he has been with us, which he proved with his Tour du Limousin victory, so it was an easy decision to keep him in our ranks. I look forward to seeing Joey continue to learn and develop as a rider with BMC Racing Team,” General Manager, Jim Ochowicz said.
Rosskopf is looking forward to the opportunity to gain more experience at the UCI WorldTour level.

I assume we’ll be doing even more UCI WorldTour races next year but that’s the goal, it’s a super high level of racing. I learned a lot from being in the position of leadership at the Tour du Limousin, winning the first stage and defending throughout the race. It gives me confidence and I feel really good about racing for the rest of this season and next year,” Rosskopf admitted.
