BMC Racing Team announces Vuelta a España line-up

BMC Racing Team has unveiled its line-up for the upcoming Vuelta a España. The WorldTour formation has selected a strong mix of names with riders like Tejay van Garderen and Samuel Sanchez set to fight for the geneneral classification.

"We are lining up at the Vuelta a España with one of the strongest rosters we have named in recent years," said BMC Sports Director Yvon Ledanois. As a result, we have a number of different goals for the race.

"To start with, the Team Time Trial in Nimes is a big objective for us. Team Time Trials are always an important discipline for BMC Racing Team, but here at the Vuelta a España, a good result means starting the three-week race with good morale and motivation, and potentially the leader's jersey.

"For the General Classification, we have a number of riders who can be up there, including Tejay van Garderen, Nicolas Roche and Samuel Sánchez. These riders are very motivated for a good result overall so we will take things day by day and see how the race plays out.

"I would like to see aggressive racing from all of our riders and with guys like Damiano Caruso, Alessandro De Marchi and Rohan Dennis, we have a good chance for stage wins. In Daniel Oss and Francisco Ventoso, we have two strong riders who will play an important role in protecting our leaders, and for Kilian Frankiny, who will make his Grand Tour debut, this will be a good learning experience for the future."
