The newly formed BMC Professional Cycling Team has commenced preparations for the 2007 season with its first team meeting, held at the Endurance Performance Training Centre in California. Also in attendance at the US-based continental team's first meeting were Andy Rihs of BMC Bicycles and team advisor Jim Ochowicz
"We felt it was important to bring the entire organization together early to begin the important process of molding a group of individuals into a team," said team director Gavin Chilcott. "This camp was our first success as a Team".
