Catch all the action from BMC Racing Team’s media day17. December 2015, Denia (ESP) — Road Team
We’ve had a full house at BMC Racing Team’s 2016 kick off and today we welcomed a few more at the annual media day ahead of the next season.
Over 20 journalists were present here in Denia, so the team took the opportunity to make a few important announcements:
- BMC Racing Team President/General Manager Jim Ochowicz confirmed that the team will continue beyond the 2016 season, backed by BMC Switzerland, as well as confirming the team’s goals going into 2016.
- Ochowicz and Sporting Manager, Allan Peiper, released the team’s seven-man roster for the Santos Tour Down Under, which includes defending champion Rohan Dennis and 2015 runner up Richie Porte.
- BMC Development Team has appointed Klaas Lodewyck as Sport Director in 2016, who was, until retiring mid-2015, a member of BMC Racing Team.
Journalists also had the opportunity to sit down with the riders and management team to discuss their objectives for the 2016 season, as well as joining the riders on a light training ride this morning in the Alicante region.
We also took the all-important 2016 team photo, but you’ll have to wait a couple of more weeks to see that!
