BMC Racing Team (BMC)

The Swiss Phonak founder Andy Rihs forms the financial backbone of the BMC team, which holds an American licence. Rihs not only owns shares in the Stade de Suisse, Wankdorf, but also the bicycle brand BMC based in Grenchen and other cycle brands (Stromer).

For BMC in the red and black jersey, a successful Tour de Suisse is an affair of the heart. So the team plans to line up again at the start with two of the four Swiss riders under contract. World time trial champion Silvan Dillier will be taking part, as well as mountain specialist Danilo Wyss, who is particularly looking forward to the 4th stage, as he lives near Champagne (VD), where the stage ends.
