Rider interview: Two interviews for the price of one as Alastair Hamilton has a very long chat with two of the most experienced American riders on the WorldTour. BMC's Peter Stetina and Brent Bookwalter were recently in Spain and PEZ had to get all the behind the scenes info on the 'Super Team'.
Some say that last is the worst spot to finish a race; but there’s also a school of thought which says second place is the worst, the winner gets to wear the champion’s jersey for a whole year - the runner-up gets the silver medal to toss in a drawer, somewhere. BMC’s Brent Bookwalter had to endure that feeling twice in the one week.
BMC Racing Team's Brent Bookwalter added another silver medal to the one he earned in Saturday's individual time trial when he was edged by Fred Rodriguez (Jelly Belly Cycling presented by Kenda) in Monday's USA Cycling national road race championship.
Brent Bookwalter will represent the BMC Racing Team at this weekend's USA Cycling national championships in Chattanooga, Tenn., and is the only returning medalist from last year's individual time trial.
It’s November. The leaves are off the trees, and – for many of us in colder climes – the turbo trainer already is set up in the basement. But think back to spring and summer. Think back to an impressive breakout season by the BMC Racing Team’s Brent Bookwalter, who completed the Giro d’Italia and Tour de France on his first attempts.
