BMC Racing Team's Rihs Presents At Swiss Sports Awards

14. December 2010

Zurich, Switzerland

BMC Racing Team Owner Andy Rihs shared his advice for success when he presented the Swiss national under-17 football team with the "best team" honor Sunday at the Swiss Sports Awards.

The Strength of Teams

Rihs joined a host of other Swiss sports celebrities at the annual awards ceremony in Zurich. Awards were handed out in more than a dozen categories. Rihs said he was honored to present the award to the team which won the 2009 World Cup in Nigeria. "They are a very enthusiastic group of athletes, not hard-core pros doing it for the salary," Rihs said. "I believe in teams because teams can outperform individuals in a dramatic way. You can overcome defeats and frustrations better as a team. You're also closer. A company is a team. A family is a team. The government should be a team. But if you have a bunch of egomaniacal guys, they will never achieve anything."
