BMC Racing Team Signs Jempy Drucker

7. agosto 2014

BMC Racing Team President/General Manager Jim Ochowicz announced Thursday the signing of Jempy Drucker to a multi-year contract, beginning in the 2015 season.

Help For The Classics
The 27-year-old from Luxembourg was runner-up last month at the Skoda Tour de Luxembourg, runner-up on Stage 5 at the Tour of Norway and finished fourth at Dwars door Vlaanderen. A professional since 2008, he has twice finished runner-up at GP Stad Zottegem (2010 and 2012) and was sixth overall last year at the Tour de Wallonie. "Jempy has a nice background in classics-style racing in the spring and summer," Ochowicz said. "He also has stage racing experience that we will be able to utilize in a number of races throughout the year. On numerous occasions, he has demonstrated his ability to time trial and deliver in the faster races solid performances and consistent results." Drucker said he was excited to receive the invitation to join the BMC Racing Team. "I think it is one of the best teams in the world," he said. "It will be a pleasure to get a chance to ride for the BMC Racing Team next year. I want to progress as a rider and become a better rider. My main races are the classics, so I hope to be able to play a big role in them and help the team get nice results or a win."
