Hot weather, sunny skies ahead for the Tour of California.

It starts tomorrow and BMC is ready to go. BMC has brought in their hit squad with the goal for team captain, Tejay van Garderen to win his first stage race.

"To win, you need a strong team and I think we have the strongest on the flats with guys like Philippe, Thor Hushovd, and Michael Schar, and on the climbs with Mathias Frank, Amael Moinard and Marco Pinotti. We also have Brent Bookwalter, who can fill both of those roles."
