Take a look at the 2016 BMC Racing Team jersey11. December 2015, Denia (ESP) — Road Team
As the 2015 seasons draws to a close, many fans have been asking us about BMC Racing Team’s 2016 jersey. We think we look pretty good in the peloton in our famous red and black BMC Racing Team colours, so we’ve only made one small change to our Pearl Izumi jersey for 2016.
We asked David Zurcher, CEO of BMC Switzerland, to explain what the significance of the modified Impec Labs logo is. “Impec has been rebranded to become Impec Lab, which will be reflected on the BMC Racing Team jersey in 2016. From a bike production facility with a small prototype workshop, we have made further investments especially in prototype tooling and simulation softwares, refocusing the engineering group on advanced Research and Development projects. Contrary to most other brands reducing timelines and internal resources, innovation is our core competence," said Zurcher.
As Team Time Trial World Champions in 2015 for the second consecutive year, BMC Racing Team will proudly wear the UCI Team Time Trial World Champion logo on the front of the jersey alongside the logos of Pearl Izumi and Shimano, and the logo from La Coquillade, the luxurious 5 star resort in Provence, on the back.
BMC Racing Team Marketing Director, Kate Ochowicz-Hogan said fans have repeatedly told the team that the BMC Racing Team jersey their favorite in the peloton.
“When you have close to 200 riders in the peloton at some races, it’s important that a jersey stands out for the team, our sponsors and for fans. BMC Racing Team’s red and black jersey certainly does that and we love seeing our fans wearing our jersey on the side of the road when they’re supporting us at races.”
Pearl Izumi is proud to be a sponsor and partner of the BMC Racing Team for 2016.
"We are especially proud to partner with BMC Racing Team and provide the riders with our speed and mesh speed race jerseys. These jerseys differ from traditional jerseys in that they have our patented speed sleeve technology which saves riders valuable watts during racing,” said Don Meyer, Sports Marketing Manager of Pearl Izumi.
"Our jerseys are based on the construction and materials in our Mach 5 Time Trial Suit, which has been marked as one of the fastest suits currently in production. The design for 2016 was refreshed to provide the guys with a great looking kit for the season."
