BMC Racing Team Announces Stagiaires

Two riders from the BMC Development Team – Belgians Dylan Teuns and Loïc Vliegen – and recent Commonwealth Games gold medalist Luke Davison of Australia will join the BMC Racing Team as stagiaires, President/General Manager Jim Ochowicz announced Friday.

Will Gain Valuable Experience
Davison, 24, was a member of the winning pursuit team in Scotland last month after helping Australia win the team pursuit at the UCI track world championships in February in Colombia. In May, he won the one-day race Simac Omloop de Kempen in the Netherlands while racing for the Synergy Baku Cycling Project team. Teuns, 22, has already signed a multi-year contract with the BMC Racing Team (beginning in 2015) after winning stages of the Tour de Bretagne and Giro Valle D’Aosta and finishing runner-up in the Under 23 editions of Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. He will make his debut at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah. Vliegen, 20, won the opening stage of Tryptiques Ardennais and was runner-up in pair of one-day races in Belgium in June (Flèche Ardennaise and Internationale Wielertrofee Jong Maar Moedig IWT). “All three of these riders have displayed the talent we are looking for when we evaluate young riders,” Ochowicz said. “They will gain valuable experience and get an introduction into the training and racing routines and programs that go along with being a member of the BMC Racing Team.”
