Rider profile

Michael Schär is the epitome of super domestique. The former Swiss National Road Race champion is one of BMC Racing Team’s most-experienced riders and has recorded eight Grand Tour participations, including the 2011 Tour de France in support of overall winner Cadel Evans.

Schär, who is often seen driving the front of the peloton, is not only an asset in stage races and Grand Tours, but also on the cobbles. Throughout his career, Schär has raced 27 Monuments and countless Classics, where he played an invaluable role in helping the likes of Greg Van Avermaet to victory.

Schär showed he has what it takes to win in his own right when he claimed stage 2 of the 2016 Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah, and came close to the overall win at the 2016 Tour des Fjords where he eventually settled for second place.
