Wrapping Up the BMC Development Team Season
“BMC Development Team’s 2017 season wrapped up yesterday with Paris-Tours Espoirs and with Jasper Philipsen taking the win in a bunch sprint, I couldn’t think of a better way to finish the year. As we announced in July, this is the last season for BMC Development Team so after a very successful season with 25 victories, it’s time to say goodbye. We started the project in 2013 and since then, have seen eight riders progress to BMC Racing Team and many more to other UCI WorldTour teams. In 2017 alone, 14 of BMC Racing Team’s 48 victories have been courtesy of our BMC Development Team graduates so I’d like to acknowledge the success of BMC Development Team in nurturing the next generation of cycling talent."
"All of our previous and current riders and staff should feel a great sense of accomplishment for what we have achieved together over the years. We are taking some great memories away from BMC Development Team and I’m sure all of our riders will remember their time with the team as they go on to forge great careers in professional cycling. I want to thank all of our partners that have supported BMC Development since 2013 and played a big role in our success. Finally, I wish all of our 2017 riders and staff the best of luck in the future.”
