Team BMC Signs Ballan, Hincapie, Kroon
Also adds Burghardt, Morabito, Schär, and Zahner to strong roster.
Top riders for every discipline
In building this team, BMC has left nothing to chance or coincidence, according to team representatives. In professional cycling, teamwork will always play the deciding factor in any race. Success or failure often depends on having the ideal mixture of talented riders. With the group BMC has built for the 2010 season, they can count on being in the running for a top result in every race they enter. "I am very happy to be coming to BMC because it has always seemed like a very good team," Alessandro Ballan said. "I will have new motivation working with them to accomplish my goals for the races like Milan San Remo, Paris-Roubaix and the Belgian Classics."
BMC will focus on competing in the UCI calendar of American and European races. "Our team will have multiple chances to measure ourselves against the greatest teams in the world. We are pleased that we will have the opportunities to send out our most successful riders to tackle these challenges," Jim Ochowicz added. The BMC Racing Team will enormously spice up and enrich the top-flight racing scene. "BMC's goals for the next season are ambitious and realistic," Hincapie concluded. "They have talented riders, are signing even more top guys, and most importantly have the passion and love of the sport which makes the sky the limit for the team."
