Simon Geschke has signed for Continuum Sports, currently known as BMC Racing Team, from the 2019 season.

The German will change teams for the first time in his career after being ten years at the team that is currently Sunweb. "Simon Geschke has forged an impressive career to date, including his 2015 Tour de France stage win, and will bring a wealth of experience to the team," said General Manager Jim Ochowicz. "Simon is a specialist when it comes to the Ardennes classics and Il Lombardia so he will add strength to our team for those one-day races, whether it be in a support role or making the most of opportunities that come his way.

"From a Grand Tour perspective, Simon has 11 participations to his name and in addition to a Tour de France stage win, he has played a fantastic role in supporting his respective team leader over the years which makes him an asset to our team."

Geschke welcomes this change in his career. "I was looking for a new challenge after ten years with the same team as that is a long time," the rider commented. "I wanted to change teams at least once in my career and I thought this year would be a good time, and then this opportunity came up so I took it.

"The team has always appeared to be very professional, and the structure is very good with the sports directors and performance team so that really impressed me. From the outside, it looks like a team with a great atmosphere. I think I will feel good in the team and will settle in well."
