CCC debuts in the World Tour category this year. The Polish team that last year fought in the Continental Pro category inherits part of the structure of the now-defunct BMC Racing Team (team that, in turn, resulted from Phonak). The latest squad to join the World Tour peloton has also become the first Polish team to ever participate in the maximum category of men’s cycling.
CCC maintains some of BMC’s best cyclists. At the head is Greg Van Avermaet who, nowadays, is the big star of the Polish team. Along with the Belgian rider, several stage hunters will also seek to obtain partial triumphs for CCC. One of the most successful ones in recent years has been the Italian rider Alessandro de Marchi, who has made the most of the breakaways he has been in, thus winning three stages in the past four years.
