Alberto Bettiol to join BMC Racing Team

Alberto Bettiol will be leaving Cannondale-Drapac at the end of the season to join BMC Racing Team.

The announcement was made by BMC's General Manager Jim Ochowicz. "Alberto Bettiol may only be 23 years old but he has been in the WorldTour for a few years now and has some very good results to his name, even recently at the Clasica Ciclista San Sebastian where he finished in sixth place against some of the best climbers in the world," he said.

"Alberto has a diverse set of racing skills and we are looking forward to helping him grow with BMC Racing Team when it comes to the Classics and time trials, which I think will be a natural progression for him. It's important to bring on riders who show this kind of potential so we are pleased to welcome Alberto to BMC Racing Team."

The Italian is looking forward to working with the team. "I've always seen BMC Racing Team as an incredibly professional team, one of the biggest teams in the WorldTour, if not the biggest team," said the rider.

"Whatever my role will be, I'll do my best. I am looking forward to the opportunity to race with a champion like Greg Van Avermaet and learn from him and the rest of the team for the cobbled Classics.

"My goal is to keep growing as a rider, as I have in the last years, and to improve my time trial skills, which is another reason why I wanted to come to BMC Racing Team, one of the best time trial teams in the world."
