    Personal Soigneurs? Perhaps BMC aren't copying Sky after all.

    Sky have a pool of Soigneurs and actively discourage working direct with individual riders.

    The lead soigneur is an Italian, Mario Pafundi,  who had a total of one year in lower pro ranks and quit because he wouldn't take the sauce (compare with Ellingworth) and on last years tour de france, both him and Brailsford thought that one soigneur, David Rozman, spent too much time with Froome and didn't do enough of his other tasks. So 2014 is new policy with soigneur rotation and Rozman won't be doing many of Froome's races.

    Mentioned this somewhere a while ago

    Van Garderen will "classic way" to the Tour without California

    http://www.biciciclismo.com/cas/site/noticias-ficha.asp?id=67559

    GT

    Quote
    Tejay Van Garderen will be the team leader of the BMC Racing Team for the Tour de France, Cadel Evans in the absence of that bet on the Giro d'Italia. After his fifth place in 2012 and despite its bump this year, Allan Peiper trusts the powers of the U.S. and has therefore prepared a racing calendar "classic" to the French round.

    "It's all geared to the Tour de France so it will not go to the Tour of California," confirms Peiper, manager performance BMC on Cyclingnews. Van Garderen won last year's U.S. round in May but then was less in the Tour de Switzerland and the Tour de France not lived up to, 45 ° and second in Alpe d'Huez.

    "Instead, it will become a classic of preparation to the Tour de France for Dauphiné, Romandie and Paris-Nice. He has the weight on his shoulders in 2014 and realizes that. With a good program and a good structure it should follow all the steps to the big event, "said Peiper. "If you want to win in California and have a peak for the Tour, is a short time and is a natural break," he adds.

    This 2013, Van Garderen (1988) won the Tour of California and USA Pro Cycling Challenge in Colorado, was segnudo in the Tour de San Luis, third in Criterium International, fourth in Paris-Nice and seventh in the Tour of Switzerland but failed in its main objective of the Tour.

    Atapuma want to "learn the most" in the BMC to be "a great champion"

    Quote
    Atapuma Darwin (1988) makes the leap to WorldTour Hand BMC Racing Team and hopes to meet the expectations after two good seasons in Colombia Team. In 2014, the Tour de France on your calendar for Tejay Van Garderen help in the mountains. Colombian cyclist expects "full learning" in the future to be "a great champion".

    The general manager Jim Ochowicz himself has made ​​known what to expect from him in the BMC Racing Team. "I got to talk to him, speaks Spanish, English, Italian. He told me he wanted on the payroll for next season over a climber, and looked at me these cycling conditions. That i can bring great things to the team and I hope to answer that confidence in all the races where there will be. And over the years to earn that same trust to lead a major test, "says the Colombian cyclist cycling World Magazine from the camp in Salt Lake City (Utah).

    Atapuma already know what the hot spots in your calendar be in 2014: "He debuted with the BMC at the Tour de San Luis in Argentina, then back to Colombia to get on with my face to the Adriatic Tirreno preparation, in the Round the Country Vasco think I'm as leader-like in San Luis, then I will make a couple of classics in Belgium, I think the Liege and Amstel Gold Race, then I will run the Critérium Dauphiné and we will be ready to debut at the Tour de France " . "They sent me the plan of work and I have been nominated to run the Tour de France next to Tejay Van Garderen," he adds.

    "At the beginning of the year I'll be there in Colombia until the Tour de San Luis, then I go back to the country to prepare the rest of the season and the following races. I will have in Italy the same residence wearing the Team Colombia, is a place I already know, I'll be near Marco (Pinotti) is going to be a doctor and a mechanic always looking out for me, "he reveals.

    In 2013, Atapuma won the queen stage of the Tour of Poland and finished 18th Giro d'Italia and last year won the Giro del Trentino. The Colombian defend the same jersey that Cadel Evans, Philippe Gilbert and Thor Hushovd. "That's one of the many reasons that I will have for the next season, they are great riders, already recognized, who have won important things too, experienced and stroke. I hope to learn the most, that gives me great joy and I wish every day, and to be sharing races with them, I still trained to be a great champion. "

    In preparation, a very important person Marco Pinotti is postulated and have begun to work together. "Marco is a great champion and has come to my Nariño department to see where I train, what do specific jobs in height, how to feed me, to give me good tips to increase in the time trial and what should I do to continue growing in the route. There are many things that one gets to ignore in this world of cycling and the help and expertise it has served me well and I hope to implement next year and give 100% of me, "says the Colombian web.

    - Stetina / Velits were recruited because they were mates of Teejay
    - Julich is now Teejay's coach (he'll know what is needed to beat Froome)
    - recruited six people to new sports science group
    - basically all-in for teejay
    - evans to be put out to pasture gracefully.

    Peiper is a genius.

    Evans gets support, gets his guys but gets the we do not think your quiet up for it. Watch Evans say flip you and do well.

    TJVG gets public support, the cuddles ( see what I did there ) his mates and the training, he also gets the it is ok if you don't do well we love you, which TJ needs. TJ to make JV envious with the most annomius top 5 at the tdf ever.

    hopefully Gilbert was told full retard ;)

    Quote
    However Evans created headlines of his own when the former world champion and Tour de France winner hinted at possible retirement at the big bike race in South Australia.

    "If Adelaide will have me back it that would be so cool for this to be my last racing appearance," said an exhausted Evans. "Don't be so sure this will be my last Tour Down Under.

    "We are all getting older but I don't think I am too old just yet to race and be competitive," continued Evans, who was making his first race appearance since 2010 when he was ninth overall. "It was a different Tour Down Under than any I have ridden before and that showed in the performance I could do."

    BMC still lacked some GT firepower in my opinion, because I do not really believe in Van Garderen as a contender at this point in the American's career.

    It seemed to me that, outside of Evans, BMC's GT riders were mostly stagehunters or superdoms. I don't say Sanchez is very different from that mould but he could offer something more solid at one or two of those stage races.
