New year, old goal: Cadel Evans returns to the Giro del Trentino (22-25 April) the experience gained last season when he managed , on these roads , to get to the physical condition that allowed him to get on the podium of the Giro d ' Italy .

The 38th edition of the appointment organized by GS Alto Garda is enriched with another great protagonist of the pedal after the announcement of Richie Porte , Evans and fellow designated leader of Team Sky for the " Corsa Rosa".

Rose like the dreams of this 37 year-old Australian who in his career has been able to claim the title of World Champion in Mendrisio 2009 and success in the Tour de France 2011. " The Giro del Trentino is the ideal race to prepare for an event like the Tour of Italy ," he says. - " The edition of last year left me with a great memory , it is a well organized race , the streets are beautiful, the scenery is also fascinating. The track is very balanced , we find high mountain stages and the time trial , in short, everything that we seek runners for the Giro . "

After an encouraging start to the season that earned him a stage win and 2nd place in General Classification in the home race , the Tour Down Under , the standard bearer of the BMC looks to spring with cautious optimism , ready to discover the first cards when the game will be tough. "I'm fine in the beginning of this season I had excellent feel . I come from two seasons a little 'subdued , where I have not picked up as hoped, however, these initial results represent an injection of confidence . I hope to continue on this path , "he added .

Building upon the results captured in the Giro del Trentino last two years ( the victory in the opening team time trial Arco- Riva del Garda in 2012 - will be repeated with the same path this year - and the success of Condino weblog Ivan Santaromita in 2013 ) , the BMC Racing did not hesitate to come back for the fifth consecutive year on the roads who have launched a year ago Vincenzo Nibali to win his first Tour of Italy .

" Nibali last year he dominated the Tour of Italy after winning the Giro del Trentino , who comes out well from this race can aspire to be a player in the Corsa Rosa ," says Evans, who has also said - "As for men classification , as well as my fellow Doors will be at the start, as usual, many strong riders able to fight for the ultimate success . "

    Samuel Sánchez feels like a new pro at BMC


    Quote
    "Every day I'm more surprised," Sánchez, who signed with BMC in February, told Spanish sports daily MARCA. "It was a very drastic change [from Euskaltel-Euskadi, his team for 14 years since he turned pro in 2000]. I've gone from what was a family-like team, where it was all very good, to one of the biggest teams in the WorldTour with major resources."

    "For example, we've got two bike riders per masseur and that means in half an hour you're almost all sorted out. That would have been inconceivable beforehand."

    Although missing former teammates, he says he appreciates the change of mentality and focus in BMC. "They give you everything you need, but it's up to you to race and act like a professional."

    "[Signing for BMC] has given me the same kind of motivation I felt as when I was a new pro.". However, he recognises that things at Euskaltel-Euskadi were not all bad, given, as he puts it, "I won a lot in a team with a lot fewer resources. In BMC, I've learned to value what I did [in Euskaltel]. Who knows what I would have achieved with this team if I'd signed for them 10 years earlier, at 26 instead of at 36."

    I find this quite eye opening. Nothing surprising, but definitely one could relate to Samu here and understand his sense of less. Considering his career path I do believe he could have gone on to achieve much more on the right team and with the right coaches and riders.

    So what do we think so far.

    Pieper is God ofc, seems the team is getting there in 2014. Dim called them the new retirement shack I disagreed,  I think end of this year, might see a realreal future.

    They have a ton of good kids, Zabel , Diller even Lander is riding well, TJVG has surprised me so far, GVA had a huge amount of support in the races he has targeted, from Burgy, MQ and Phinney.

    looks good on that front, Thor will probably go, Samu as well. So Phil needs to step up.

    Evans is last year of contract and who knows what next year will bring but he adds a level of top 10 which help with points and will next year as well.

    they still lack a bit but smart signings again and kids getting stronger will be a young strong team. Not as strong as the budgetbthey spend but a strong team always there.

    Good signs imo

    Phil REALLY needs to step up here.   He is a leader ... he needs to show that and start earning the mega-bucks he is being paid.

    I agree I think Thor will be out after this year.  I also think Evans will retire ...

    TJVG is still a year or two away I think, but they do have some good talent coming through - just a matter of managing it.  On that score, Peiper seems to be doing the job well.  The split up of the classics has been good.  With so many leaders, and boys who wont share the sandpit - he has taken the hard decisions and made them suck it up and deal with it.  Telling Phil no Flanders, Evans no Tour etc ... was very obviously the right moves.

    Hope it comes off

    and Go PHIL !!!!

    Good signs, but nothing concrete just yet.

    I don't see any race where I would fancy one of their riders as an out and out favourite. With the resources they have pooled in they should be top of the list, but it doesn't seem that way. However, there have been a lot of promising performance. Not it is time for one rider to step up, whether that is Samu or Evans for a final hurrah is a possibility.

    But my bet would be on Tejay, he has had his share of rough times but he seems to have sorted himself out thoroughly and is riding as he should. (Lol, as I am writing this he rides a slightly tame 12th in al Pais Vasco, outshone by Samu).

    They are a points scoring team who will score the points and do the business, but won't win any awards for results either. Make or break year definitely for Phil, he either steps up in this year's Ardennes or he forever will remain a kind of disappointment.

    They're starting to feel a bit like Garmin. Decent team, riders that are mostly easy to like, relatively clean image, and a broad selection with no real superstars. Yet Garmin does that with probably around half the budget BMC has...

    Was thinking when Dim was saying perfect team for EBH under performing over paid perfect.

    was wondering if 2011 until now what the stats would say.

    performance wise wins , podiums, top 10 ,  level of wins etc what the stats would say,?

    I assume OPQS would be 1st, bjt 2nd? Might be BMC recon they might be close, probably be Sky due to Wiggo and Froome but then Katusha, BMC, Movistar would be an interesting topic for a stats person and more detailed than CQ
