Dennis Extends Contract with BMC Racing Team13. June 2016, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
Rohan Dennis has extended his contract beyond the 2016 season, BMC Racing Team announced today.
Dennis, who transferred to BMC Racing Team midway through the 2014 season, has already recorded impressive results, General Manager Jim Ochowicz said.
“Since Rohan joined us in 2014 he has had some incredible victories, including winning the 2015 Tour de France time trial which saw him wear the Yellow Jersey. It’s a natural decision to keep a rider of this calibre in the team, particularly as he has not yet reached his full potential as a rider. I look forward to seeing him do so with BMC Racing Team.”
Dennis attributes his decision to stay with BMC Racing Team to the high level of support.
“It’s been almost two and a half years with BMC Racing Team and that half year did show that the team had confidence in me. They gave me the six months initially to find my feet in the team and I really appreciated that, as well as all of the support for the rest of the time. With BMC Racing Team everything I have done, from the Hour Record to my time trial preparation, even through to sickness this year, they’ve been supportive. It’s a great team and a great place for me.”
In keeping with BMC Racing Team policy, no other details of the contract were released.
