Ben Hermans has extended his contract with BMC Racing Team after three solid seasons with the team, General Manager Jim Ochowicz today announced.

 

“Ben is an exceptional athlete which he has proven on many occasions this year. His progression throughout each season has always been better and better and certainly the Vuelta a Espana was his high point this year. Yet there’s a lot more to come from Ben. He’s demonstrated his ability to support leaders and support the team, but he’s also capable of winning on his own which is a great combination. I’m very happy to see Ben stay with BMC Racing Team,” Ochowicz said.

 

Hermans, who was on the podium at Vuelta a Burgos this year is looking forward to continuing his progression as a rider.

 

“I’ve always enjoyed riding for BMC racing team, as it is one of the best teams in the world. In the past 3 years since 2014, I’ve been able to race in a lot of nice races at the highest level, getting a program that suits me best. Even after those three years I still have the feeling that we make improvements and more is possible in 2017,” Hermans explained.

 

“In 2017 I would like to make a step forward in winning a race in the World Tour. I have been close several times in the past, so it should be possible. The Vuelta a Espana this year also gave me more confidence for the grand tour races, proving that I am able to ride at a good level for three weeks. With this in my mind I would like to do something special in one of the grand tours next year. Together with the hilly classics this gives me enough goals for the next season.”

 

In keeping with BMC Racing Team policy no other details of the contract were released.
