BMC Pro Cycling team athletes John Garcia, Nathan Miller and Scott Nydam join the US Team at the 'Good Luck' test event held on the Beijing Olympic course. Immediately following their return, the riders join their BMC team-mates for a short training camp in the mountains of North Carolina preceding the US Pro road and time trial championships in Greenville, South Carolina.
"I am very happy about this opportunity for Garcia, Miller and Nydam. All three of these riders are showing a lot of promise as road racers of the future; and they are ideally suited for the Beijing courses," said team director Gavin Chilcott.
All three riders will participate in the road race, while Nydam and Garcia will contest the time trial.
Chilcott added, "In addition to working hard at building the BMC team organisation, we have invested a lot in these new 'talent' riders this year. In addition to being physically gifted athletes, these athletes are also highly motivated to take advantage of good opportunities. The results of that motivation take form in a lot of ways, ranging from Scott Nydam's 6th place overall finish at the Tour of Georgia to the enthusiasm and seriousness with which these guys have approached the trip to Beijing."
