AMGEN Tour of California

BMC Racing Team at the start line

AMGEN Tour of California

   

Jackson Stewart (USA)

Sports Director

“We are heading into this year’s AMGEN Tour of California with an experienced and very capable team. We are excited to be returning to this great race with Tejay van Garderen, who is a previous winner here, and of course, we would like to be successful in the General Classification. But, we will also keep an eye out for opportunities to go for a stage victory depending on the dynamic.”

“We are going to arrive in Long Beach on Sunday with a very motivated roster of riders and staff and I’m looking forward to a successful week.” 

Patrick Bevin (NZL)

2012, 2016

"I'm pleased to be back in California. The route looks challenging and I think BMC Racing Team has a great chance to fight it out for the overall General Classification win. My biggest personal objective is the time trial. I have been chipping away at improving my TT and a long, tough time trial is right in my wheelhouse come stage 4."

Brent Bookwalter (USA)

2007, 2011 - 2013, 2016, 2017

"The past two editions of the AMGEN Tour of California have been high points in my season and I’m grateful to be back for this year's race and to have a chance to continue my progression of performance here. It's a pleasure to be back in the USA and I’ll relish the chance to be comfortably “at home” over the next week. We have a stacked team that will be strong in every terrain and stage so I’m confident we will have a strong impact on the results from day to day and especially the overall."

Joey Rosskopf (USA)

2015 

“It’s an unusual feeling to show up to California and see the whole peloton we’re used to racing against in Europe temporarily transplanted to the U.S. for a week. It makes me realize what the AMGEN Tour of California has accomplished, making this race important on the world stage."

"Racing in California also gives me the precious, rare opportunity to visit and race in front of my parents and other family members.”

Michael Schär (SUI)

2013 - 2017 

"I am excited to be lining up at the AMGEN Tour of California. After the Classics campaign I had a little break and then I started to prepare for the second part of the season. This will be my first race back. We have a strong team with two capable leaders but all the other stages will be a goal for us too as we have several cards to play."

Tejay van Garderen (USA)

2007, 2011 - 2013 (winner)

“I’m super excited about making a return to the AMGEN Tour of California as the 2013 edition was a special memory for me. The course is demanding but, we have a strong team and we will go into the race with big goals.”

Nathan Van Hooydonck (BEL)

First time racing 

"With Tejay, we have a clear leader for the GC and an important thing will be that he does not lose time in the sprint stages. I will try to help him get through these stages safely and after that, I really want to test my skills in the time trial on stage 3." 

Danilo Wyss (SUI)

2008, 2015, 2016

"It's quite a hard parcours this year. I have already done some of the stages in past editions and we have done a recon of stage 2. We have a strong team here and we are all motived to do well here in California."
