Teuns to Continue with BMC Racing Team26. April 2016, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
BMC Racing Team today announced the extension of Dylan Teuns’ contract beyond the 2016 season.
Teuns, who is a graduate of the BMC Development Team, is an excellent rider to retain in BMC Racing Team’s roster, General Manager Jim Ochowicz said.
“It was an obvious decision to keep a rider like Dylan Teuns in the team. Since transitioning from BMC Development Team to BMC Racing Team and spending the past two seasons with us, he has proven time and time again that he has a strong ability to ride in a WorldTour team. He’s a very capable rider and is still coming into his own form and finding his place in the peloton alongside his teammates,” Ochowicz said.
“He has showed very good results, especially lately in the Ardennes Classics, and he has a great future ahead of him in BMC Racing Team. As one of six riders who have graduated from BMC Development Team to BMC Racing Team, Dylan is a fantastic example of how these riders not only make it into the professional peloton, but also excel.”
For Teuns, the decision to remain with BMC Racing Team was a natural one.
“I have been within the BMC family for quite a few years now and feel at home in the team. I have really developed as a rider in the past two years since turning pro and I think that I can continue to develop well with the team and get good results in bigger races,” Teuns said.
“It was a really natural decision because I have a lot of support from the BMC Racing Team management and my teammates, which I felt during the Ardennes Classics, so I’m really looking forward to the rest of the season and beyond.”
In keeping with BMC Racing Team policy, no other terms or conditions of the contract were released.
