BMC-Etixx Team Manager Bob De Wolf said:
"With the addition of some significant partners for the coming season we're thrilled to take BMC-Etixx from strength to strength. The team’s mission statement is to provide maximal professional support, to optimize the performance for our athletes.
"Obviously such can only be achieved through the commitment and contributions of our sponsors and partners. Shimano, PRO and Pearl iZUMi took us to several significant wins in 2014 and 2015 and the riders are very happy to have such high level support for the coming season.”
“The continuous commitment of Shimano allows us to build a long-term high-performance platform to develop talent and deliver victories. What’s more, Shimano is the company that all our riders want to work with so we're delighted to announce the extension of our partnership."
