Taylor Phinney and Peter Stetina have announced their return to the BMC Racing Team Monday at the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah.

Phinney has been sidelined 62 weeks since fracturing his left leg and injuring his left knee in a crash at the 2014 USA Cycling national road championships in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Stetina has not raced since early April when he broke his right tibia and patella and five ribs in a crash near the finish of Stage 2 at Vuelta al Pais Vasco.

Dr. Max Testa said: "Taylor has been working very hard to get to where he is now and believes that he is ready to race. The team has no expectations of him. He will test his condition to see where his knee is and what kind of condition he has. From this race, he can gauge what the rest of the season may look like."

Stetina has also been working extremely hard in his recovery, according to Dr. Testa.

"All of the doctors who have seen Peter cannot believe his determination," he said. "He did not want to miss this opportunity to return to racing in the U.S. The team will not put any pressure on him, either. He will have to take the race one stage at a time and see how he feels."

Besides Phinney, who won two stages of the Tour of Utah in 2010, the BMC Racing Team's roster also includes past stage winners Brent Bookwalter (2009) and Michael Schär (2014) and last year's "king of the mountains" classification champion, Joey Rosskopf.

Riders:
Brent Bookwalter (USA), Kilian Frankiny (SUI), Taylor Phinney (USA), Joey Rosskopf (USA), Michael Schär (SUI), Manuel Senni (ITA), Peter Stetina (USA).
