Specialties and Strengths: One-day classics, stage races
Martin Elmiger will be making a return to his roots in 2017 when he joins BMC Racing Team after starting his pro-cycling career in 2001 on BMC Switzerland bikes with Andy Rihs at Phonak.
Heading into his 16th year as a professional cyclist, Elmiger will play a key role in BMC Racing Team’s Classic and Grand Tour ambitions, having consistently proven himself as a strong and versatile road captain, and a rider more than capable of playing both a support role and winning in his own right.
Elmiger, who won the Santos Tour Down Under in 2007 and has ridden 41 Monuments and nine Grand Tours, proved that he still has all the skills necessary to be up there on the cobbles at Paris-Roubaix after finishing 5th in 2015, and he is often seen trying his luck in a breakaway during stage races.
