The victories are part of the package, but it is less about podiums and more about panache – we’re talking about creating a legacy in the sport. In our eyes, BMC Legends must be bastions of cycling, with reputations that precede them. Long before these riders became legends, they relied on the sheer power of their pedal strokes to take them from aspiring racers to the elite. They worked tirelessly on the front of the peloton and ended their careers with Olympic golds – or even transitioned from off-road prodigy to road master. There’s a lot we can learn from them. Be it on the track or the roads, Grand Tours or one-day Classics, BMC Legends are the masters of their game. Legends representing everything BMC strives to be; a legendary brand.

Fabian Cancellara

Icon is a word that gets thrown around a lot in cycling, but if there is one person it irrefutably applies to then it’s Fabian Cancellara. Nothing more to say here.

Cadel Evans

Cadel Lee Evans doesn't need an introduction. The impressive palmarès, including the 2011 Tour de France title, of the legendary rider speaks for itself.

Switzerland4118 March 19812018

The Swiss rider that dominated time trials and one-day races over the past decade is the first to admit he likes going fast, really fast. And when you enjoy something and are good at it, results in the biggest races follow. Early success came on the time trial courses of World Championships and Grand Tours, followed by eternal glory at prestigious one-day classics like Milan–San Remo, Flanders, and Roubaix. In his sixteen years as a professional, the dominant figure of Cancellara brought home two Olympic Gold medals from Rio and Beijing, as well as no fewer than four seasons spent in a rainbow time trial suit. With less of an interest in hunting World Champion stripes these days, Cancellara spends equal time riding with his wife and daughters as he does heading up a dynamic business venture with his innovative global race series, Chasing Cancellara, as well as a host of corporate events. He was always a well-liked cyclist, and now it looks like he may be even more popular than ever.
