The 2016 season is well and truly heating up and BMC Racing Team is set to line up at Strade Bianche (5 March) and Paris-Nice (6-13 March) this weekend.
 
"We're bringing a strong team to Strade Bianche this Saturday including Greg Van Avermaet on the back of his win at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad last weekend, so we're definitely motivated to do well. It will be a hard race but that's what we like," BMC Racing Team Sports Director Max Sciandri said.
 
Van Avermaet is confident following his win at the opening Spring Classic.
 
"Winning Omloop Het Nieuwsblad definitely gives me more confidence going into the next races. I know my form is good so we'll see what happens," Van Avermaet confirmed.
 
On Sunday, BMC Racing Team will line up at the prologue of Paris-Nice ahead of the six-stage race, which will be Richie Porte's first race in Europe since joining BMC Racing Team.
 
"Paris-Nice is a really solid race in the early part of the season and a good way to test my form. I'm going into the race this year with less expectation than in previous years and see it as another opportunity to get some more race days in the legs," Porte explained.
 
BMC Racing Team Sports Director Fabio Baldato said there are numerous stages that are suited to the team.
 
"We are bringing a well-rounded team and I think we have a good shot at stage wins with riders like Philippe Gilbert and Rohan Dennis."
