BMC Racing Team Looking for Success at Tour de Yorkshire27. April 2016, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
BMC Racing Team will be looking to replicate previous success when the seven-rider team lines up at the Tour de Yorkshire from 29 April to 1 May.
“We have a diverse team of riders who can definitely go for both the General Classification and stage wins, including Ben Hermans who won a stage in the inaugural edition in 2015,” Sports Director Jackson Stewart said.
Hermans is looking forward to returning to the race.
“Having won a stage in 2015 it will be nice to have the opportunity to return to Tour de Yorkshire, especially with the strong team that we have. My focus has been on the one-day Classics recently so it’s a good chance to get back into stage racing,” Hermans confirmed.
Tour de Yorkshire will also be the first race back for both Rohan Dennis and Michael Schär who have been recovering from illness and injury respectively.
