BMC Racing is already looking ahead to chilly spring days in Northern Europe, far away from Spain’s sunny Costa Blanca, where its riders were racking up early-season miles at a mid-December training camp. The American team is aiming for another win in a major spring classic.
Philippe Gilbert notched BMC’s first classics win at Amstel Gold in 2014, and the team is hoping for more of the same in the coming season.
“We want to go back to the classics and bring home another victory — and possibly a second,” team president and general manager Jim Ochowicz said.
Greg Van Avermaet also scored two second places in 2014′s major early-season tests, at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Ronde van Vlaanderen (Tour of Flanders). The 29-year-old Belgian will return for his fifth year with the American outfit, again with sights set on success in cobbled classics. This comes despite rumblings of discord between him and Gilbert, 32, who hinted that he might like a shot at the likes of Paris-Roubaix or Tour of Flanders.
Beyond the springtime, BMC aims to return to the Tour de France with a contender in the form of Tejay van Garderen, who has grown into his role as a grand tour leader after five years with the organization.
“We would like to elevate [van Garderen] to another level at the Tour de France and get him on the podium in 2015,” Ochowicz said. Van Garderen, 26, finished fifth overall in 2015, equalling his best result at the race, in 2012, when he won the young rider’s classification.

Australian Rohan Dennis confirmed he will take a run at the hour record in February. The news came in a BMC Racing team press release issued Wednesday.
The team says that Dennis, 24, will try to set a new best mark at the Velodrome Suisse in Grenchen, Switzerland, on February 8.
Dennis won an Olympic silver medal in London two years ago, alongside Jack Bobridge, who will also challenge the hour record next year. More recently, Dennis finished second at the Amgen Tour of California, thanks in part to a strong performance in the individual time trial. He said he is a bit nervous, but very much up to the challenge.
“When I look at my experience on the track and the numbers I have been doing on the track and on the road, it is within reach,” he said. “As long as I don’t get too excited at the start and control my nerves, the pacing will take care of itself.”
BMC team sporting manager Allan Peiper said planning for the attempt began shortly after Dennis helped win the world team time trial. “We have been working on it, taking all the circumstances into consideration,” he said. “This is something Rohan really wants to do. Part of our development for him is to support him in the things he wants to achieve. So that is the main reason we are doing it.”
