John Murphy, United States Criterium champion, signs a two year deal with BMC racing team. He will be living in Europe, as most of the 2010 schedule will be there. Murphy signed the deal in Mid-September after talks with team manager Gavin Chillcot and directeur sportif Mike Sayers. Murphy says that the team feels he would be a great Classics rider;
“Help in the Classics: that’s what I think I’m on the team for and it’s where I can help the most. Hopefully I can do my job whatever that is, whether it’s fetching bottles or leading out sprints. I’m up for whatever.”
The Spring Classics are scheduled to start Italy’s Milan-Sanremo, stay tuned to see how John Murphy is fairing!
