BMC Racing Team Extends Contract For Wyss

30. August 2014

Danilo Wyss, one of the longest-running members of the BMC Racing Team, will remain with the squad in 2015 after receiving a contract extension.

'A Dedicated Teammate'
BMC Racing Team President/General Manager Jim Ochowicz announced the extension for the 29-year-old Swiss Saturday at the Vuelta a España, where Wyss is competing. A member of the BMC Racing Team since he turned professional in 2008, Wyss often puts aside ambitions of personal success to help his teammates, Ochowicz said. "Danilo has proven on every occasion to be a dedicated teammate," Ochowicz said. "He has contributed to many of the team's successes this season and will do so again in the future. Whether it is a grand tour or a single-day race, we can always count on Danilo to do his job." Wyss said he was excited to receive the contract extension, specific terms of which were not announced. "I am really proud to have been with the team for a long time and I have so many good memories from the past seven years," Wyss said. "I especially recall my first grand tour, the Giro d'Italia in 2010, which was also the first grand tour for the team." Wyss has finished every Giro since, including helping teammate Cadel Evans place third there last year. "Next year, I hope to keep doing my best work for the team," Wyss said. "I don't really have personal objectives. I just take the opportunities when I have them."
