BMC Development Team’s Grand Wins Gila’s Sprint Classification
logo bmc Arnaud Grand of the BMC Development Team won the Grant County sprint classification Sunday at Silver City’s Tour of the Gila, while teammate Silvan Dillier was the team’s best finisher overall in 12th place.

‘Nice To Have A Jersey’
Grand first donned the green jersey after winning Stage 2 on Thursday and held it through to the end of the five-day event that capped the BMC Development Team’s first race in the United States Dillier, who finished third in Friday’s Stage 3 time trial, was 14th in the mountainous final stage, the Gila Monster Road Race. Francisco Mancebo (5-Hour Energy presented By Kenda) took the stage win and Philip Deignan (UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team) won the race overall. BMC Development Team General Manager Rik Verbrugghe said the squad worked hard to protect Grand’s jersey on the last two stages. “It was not our main goal, but it was nice to have a jersey at the end of a tour,” Verbrugghe said. “We also tried to move Silvan into the top 10 today but it was a really hard stage with a lot of movement and change of position on the front. Everyone was fighting all day.” Grand’s accomplishment was not the only noteworthy performance for the BMC Development Team Sunday. At the GP Luzern in Switzerland, Tom Bohli won the amateur road race.
