Samuel Sanchez has reportedly signed up with esteemed cycling squad BMC racing. The 2008 Olympic road racing champion would be playing for BMC for the year.

BMC is looking forward to boost up its squad line-up for classics & Grand Tours this year- & Sanchez inclusion within the team is nothing less than a divine bliss for them. The Olympic champion has finished twice on famous Grand Tour podium: he came up 2nd in Vuelta Espana 2009 & 3rd in 2010 Tour France.
“Sammy would add in a heightened level of experience and skill to BMC Racing”, stated Jim Ochowicz, the BMC manager, while asked to speak a few words on their recent dealing with the leading Spaniard rider. “He would able to cover every base, especially we are hopeful to have him support his BMC mates in Ardennes classics & grand tours.”
Sanchez himself is very excited to be a part of the esteemed American squad. “I am feeling like a cyclist who has achieved his 1st ever contract”, noted Sanchez. “I would like to thank the whole BMC squad, specifically Jim Ochowicz and Andy Rihs for letting me so warmly into one among the most prestigious squads of WorldTour.”
“I am hopeful that I would be able to share my own cycling experiences with younger mates on this team”, Sammy added further. “After riding for a large stretch of years with the mission to beat Evans (Cadel), it would be great to assist him as he is one of riders whom I know pretty well.”
