BMC Racing Team Reveals Full Hammer Series Line-Up29. May 2017, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
A new race format launches this weekend with teams battling to be crowned cycling’s best team at the Hammer Series, a three-day, multi-discipline event.
Sports Director Jackson Stewart said that BMC Racing Team is lining up with a versatile seven-rider roster.
“We are excited to be part of a new format of bike racing and to contribute in a new way to professional cycling. It will be an action-packed race with the focus changing every day and each team’s sprinting, climbing and time trialling abilities all being tested.”
“We are taking a well-rounded team that I think can be competitive across the three consecutive challenges: the Hammer Sprint, Hammer Climb, and Hammer Chase. While we are obviously unsure what to expect, and how it will differ from other races that we have competed in, I think it is almost certain that there will be some great racing for fans to enjoy.”
Samuel Sánchez is looking forward to racing at the inaugural Hammer Series.
“We will face a new, multi-discipline race format at the Hammer Series which I think will produce some pretty spectacular racing. It will be great for us to see the roads lined with cycling fans and I think it will be an exciting experience for all those who attend and those who watch online. Some of us are lining up following the AMGEN Tour of California, and I am sure our legs will respond well. I’m looking forward to getting started,” Sánchez explained.
