Sciandri leaves British Cycling for BMC team

Max Sciandri checks on David Millar

British Cycling's Max Sciandri will be moving on to the BMC Racing Team in 2011, where he expects to have a similar role to the one he has had with BC in Italy for the last few years - working with the team's younger riders and scouting out new talent.

Sciandri was heavily involved in the organisation and creation of BC's Italian base at Quarrata for the under-23 British Cycling Academy, which has been the ‘nursery' for several riders who have gone on to turn pro.
