"A great opportunity has come for me to join a growing team of like-minded individuals at BMC," Evans said. "I look forward to working with the BMC group toward the same goals including the Tour de France. I see the BMC Racing Team as a growing but very well structured and organized team.
"Obviously, I would like to do better than my two second places at the Tour de France."
Evans, 32, came second in the 2007 and 2008 Tours and his new team said their ambitious recent signings made him think he could win a Grand Tour with them.
"Cadel heard about how our team was expanding by signing big-name riders like George Hincapie, Alessandro Ballan,Marcus Burghardt, Karsten Kroon and other strong racers," BMC Bicycles owner and BMC Racing co-owner Andy Rihs said.
"This news immediately fired him up with the idea of riding for such a flexible, engaged and passionate team."
Australian Evans joined his former team in 2005, when they were known as Davitamon-Lotto.
With them the former mountain biker won the 2006 Tour of Romandie and the 2007 UCI Pro Tour title, in addition to last year's road race win.
"After five successful years, including two podium places in the Tour de France and the recent victory in Mendrisio, Cadel has decided to take advantage of his increased market value and look for new challenges," the Belgian team said in a statement.
The 32-year-old, a twice Tour de France runner-up, claimed the most significant victory of his career when he won the road race at the world championships in Switzerland last month.
We thank Cadel for his unique contribution to this achievement, and we are confident that, with the existing and emerging talents, Omega Pharma-Lotto will continue to experience many sportive peaks in the future. Congratulations and good luck to Cadel.
We hope we can coach even more cyclists to reach their top level, to the benefit of the cyclists concerned, the team as well as the beautiful sport discipline that cycling is.Reuters
