Following a successful season with US team Navigators Insurance, South African Darren Lill will join the BMC Racing Team in 2008.

The 25 year-old suffered a rough start to the season, his first and only season with Navigators, due to a suspected thyroid problem, but he finished it on a high note with top placings in both in the US and Europe, including wins at the Nevada City Classic and stage 5 in the Mt Hood stage race. Most recently, he represented South Africa at the UCI Road World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany, where he did not finish.

In September, his current Navigators Insurance team announced it would be disbanding at the end of the year after 14 seasons.
