Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race

BMC Racing Team at the start line on January 28th, 2018

Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race (AUS)

Fabio Baldato (ITA)

Sports Director

"We have multiple cards to play at the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race. Simon Gerrans will be our protected rider for a sprint finish as last year he was right up there and finished second in the group of 20 or so riders. I expect there to be a selection of 20 to 30 riders there at the finish again this year. With Rohan Dennis and Richie Porte in great shape, we can also go on the offensive and try something different."

Tom Bohli (SUI)

First time racing

"I have the feeling that I came out of the Santos Tour Down Under stronger than I went in so I think I recovered pretty well from it. The Cadel Road Race circuit is a tough one and it will show very quickly who is in good shape and who has to work hard to stay there. All in all, I have a good feeling about Sunday and my shape. I hope that I’ll still be there in the crucial moments to help our leaders."

Patrick Bevin (NZ)

Raced: 2015, 2017

"I recovered well after the Santos Tour Down Under. It was nice to get my first race in the legs after a turbulent start to the season. After a couple of weeks on the road with the team I also feel like I am settling in and I am enjoying the atmosphere. The Cadel Road Race presents an interesting dynamic. It could play out many different ways and my main job is to execute my job for the team as best I can. This is my third time here and having spent a lot of time racing in Victoria previously it’s as close as I get to a ‘home’ race and this adds more motivation on Sunday."

Rohan Dennis (AUS)

Raced: 2016, 2017

"We’ll be lining up on Sunday to support Simon Gerrans so we’ll do everything we can to help him get the win. It’s a hard race and like any one-day race, it can be unpredictable. It’s great to have another race in Australia with WorldTour status and it’s an important one for BMC Racing Team."

Simon Gerrans (AUS)

Raced: 2016, 2017 (2nd)

"I really like the course. The first loop we do when we head down towards the Great Ocean Road is quite scenic and a good way to get a few kilometers out of the way. As we get to the finish circuits it becomes a really selective part where we often see a small group come to the finish. I really like the circuit and I think it suits me well."

Richie Porte (AUS)

Raced: 2015, 2017

"I can take a lot of confidence out of my performance at the Santos Tour Down Under. I’m climbing just as well now as I was last year so I’m confident that I can race well on Sunday. I was able to try my luck last year in the finale and this year, we’ll see how things play out on the day. We have a great team, including Simon Gerrans who came so close last year and who I think will have a good shot this year."

Miles Scotson (AUS)

Raced: 2017

"Race Melbourne was a good test to see how I recovered after the Santos Tour Down Under and I’m feeling good after a week of racing. The course if fairly straight forward until the tough circuits at the end which is where the race becomes exciting. It’s my last race in Australia before heading overseas so the objective is to give 100 percent towards our team crossing the line first on Sunday."

Danilo Wyss (SUI)

Raced: 2015 - 2017

"I feel quite good. I had some quiet recovery days this week and yesterday in the Race Melbourne criterium it was a bit warm, but I’m feeling good in general. The tough circuit makes a big difference in the race and this year with Simon Gerrans, we have a rider who can do really well so that’s an extra motivation for the whole team. It will be hot on Sunday so I think that will stop riders from really trying to make the race too hard too early."
