Bookwalter signs contract extension with BMC Racing

Brent Bookwalter re-signs to race with Richie Porte, Van Avermaet and friends after a successful racing season

US professional cyclist Brent Bookwalter has announced he's re-signed with BMC Racing for the 2018 season.

"When I reflect back on the past 10 years and ahead to 2018, the people who make up the BMC Racing Team are what made it an easy decision to return for my 11th season. I've relished the chances to grow out of a pure worker roll and have the opportunity to also race for personal results, leading the team when the opportunity arises," Bookwalter said.

“I know I have greater potential when it comes to this role within the team and am confident I have more to give. I've put myself in the position to win on several occasions this season, so I am motivated to translate these opportunities into victories for myself and the team."

"In Brent Bookwalter and Danilo Wyss, we have 20 years of combined experience at BMC Racing Team," Jim Ochowicz said 

“Both riders have signed on for their eleventh year with the team and I think that speaks for itself. Brent consistently proves himself in both a leader and support capacity and Danilo is a rider that is always there to support our leaders but will make the most of an opportunity when it comes his way. To have riders with this level of racing experience in the team is invaluable and I look forward to seeing Brent and Danilo continue to develop with us," Ochowicz explained.

Bookwalter joined the team in 2008, when they were ranked with the Pro Continental division of the sport. He's been a constant presence throughout the team's WorldTour years and has developed into one of the most solid domestiques in the peloton.

This season, Bookwalter nearly won the final stage of the Tour of the Alps, headed up the BMC Racing Team's squad at the Tour de Yorkshire stage race in the UK and came home to compete in the AMGEN Tour of California where he finished fourth overall.
