Former Spanish national road race champion Francisco Ventoso will join BMC Racing Team in 2017, General Manager Jim Ochowicz confirmed today.
 
Ventoso, 34, is the third addition to BMC Racing Team's 2017 roster and strengthens both the grand tour and classics' teams, Ochowicz said.
 
"Francisco Ventoso is a very versatile rider who will fit well with BMC Racing Team's objectives. He is not only a strong classics rider, but also a great support rider for the grand tours. Francisco has been on the professional circuit for a long time so he is experienced in the peloton and understands what needs to be done in different race scenarios, which ticks a lot of boxes for us. Francisco is also a multiple grand tour stage winner so when given the opportunity he also knows how to win. We look forward to seeing him in the BMC Racing Team kit in 2017," Ochowicz explained.
 
Ventoso appreciates the opportunity to join BMC Racing Team.
 
"For me it is a great motivation to go to one of the best teams in the world and it is an honor for me to join the group of riders who will attack the spring classics with Greg Van Avermaet as captain," Ventoso said.
 
"My main goal for 2017 is to put all of my experience and my strength into the team to make BMC Racing Team even stronger. I greatly appreciate the confidence placed in me and I will give the best version of myself as a rider."
 
Ventoso, who claimed the Spanish road race title in 2012, is a two-time Giro d'Italia stage winner, Vuelta a Espana stage winner and has competed in 11 grand tours throughout his career.
 
In keeping with BMC Racing Team policy no other details of the contract were released.
