BMC finally confirmed the transfer rumor that many people had long expected – that Cavendish has signed with Sky. Just kidding! They announced that Phillipe Gilbert has signed with BMC. He joins reigning Tour champion Cadel Evans, and reigning World Champion Thor Hushovd.
Is it getting a bit crowded at BMC? Evans reminded the media that BMC’s 2012 Tour team would be built around him, not around split aims. Hushovd obviously wants to be a leader for Paris-Roubaix, and Gilbert will want to win every race he enters – and just might try.
BMC is shaping up to be a powerhouse, but are they sowing the seeds of their own demise? Are they too crowded at the top?
