Team Dimension Data is delighted to confirm that Danilo Wyss has agreed terms and will join the team on a two-year contract, from 1 January 2019.
The 32-year-old Swiss rider has been with the BMC Racing Team for his entire career and now, after 11 years, will join our African Team.
2018 has seen Wyss involved in a busy schedule having raced the Tour Down Under, Tour of California, Critérium du Dauphiné, Romandie, Catalunya, Basque Country as well as Tour de Yorkshire, highlighting his versatility.
As such, the 2015 Swiss road race champion brings a wealth of experience to bolster our squad as we continue to build towards the future, and in keeping with our Vision 2020 goals.
In addition, following the announcement during the Tour de France of our exciting new partner, BMC Switzerland, Danilo’s knowledge of the brand will undoubtedly bring key insights which he’ll be able to share not only with our riders but with our staff too.
Danilo Wyss – Rider
I’m really happy to take on this new challenge. I have been riding on BMC bikes for 11 years now and it’s really nice to keep that particular story going, as BMC will also be the new bike supplier for Team Dimension Data (from 2019).
We will, of course, look to be successful on the road but I also really like the way in which the team supports the Qhubeka charity. I realise that I’m very lucky to be able to live my passion by being on the bike and this new opportunity means that I will be able to help others through the team, as well as through Qhubeka.
