BMC Helps Team Roll To Success

4. November 2010

Santa Rosa, California

Even before Cadel Evans pulled on the yellow jersey for the BMC Racing Team at this year's Tour de France, the BMC he was riding was attracting plenty of attention.

Innovative Technology
The BMC "impec" (short for "impeccable") is the world's first exclusive machine-made carbon frame. Its tubes are connected by newly developed shells to form a highly stable frame. These shells are made from ultra-lightweight, high-strength composite material. They comprise a high content of carbon fibers to withstand extremely high loads at a minimum weight. A few short months after Evans debuted the impec, it won a Eurobike Gold Award as one of the 12 most innovative cycling products of 2010.

Comfortable And Fast
Over the course of the 2010 season, members of the BMC Racing Team rode a number of BMCs to victories, including the team machine SLR01, the pro machine SLC01 and the racemaster SLX01. In time trials, the BMC time machine TT01 helped Brent Bookwalter to a runner-up finish in the opening time trial of the Giro d'Italia. "I think our mix of BMCs, with Easton wheels and Continental tires, makes for a comfortable, fast ride," Bookwalter said. Click here to learn more about BMC bikes that are "engineered for excitement."
