Moinard Renews With BMC Racing Team

25. July 2014

The BMC Racing Team will extend the contract of Amaël Moinard, President/General Manager Jim Ochowicz announced Friday.

'A Valuable Asset'
A member of the BMC Racing Team since 2011, Moinard has helped teammate Tejay van Garderen to sixth place in the overall standings heading into the final weekend of the Tour de France. The Frenchman also figured in breakaways on Stages 9, 10, 14 and 17 and was the winner of Stage 2 of the Tour du Haut Var in February. "Amaël has proven to be a valuable asset to the team in past years in the grand tours, and in particular in the Tour de France," Ochowicz said. "He joins his eight other teammates here in France who are confirmed for their participation with the team for 2015." Moinard, who helped teammate Cadel Evans win the Tour de France in 2011, said he enjoys the role of domestique he has often been tasked to play for the team. "To work for Tejay at the Tour de France has really been a pleasure," he said. "We have been going in the moves to be part of the race and try to win stages, or to go in the breakaways to be support for Tejay. That freedom convinced me to keep riding for the BMC Racing Team." Specific terms of Moinard's contract were not announced, in keeping with BMC Racing Team policy.
