Bobby Julich has joined BMC Racing as a consultant, the Swiss-American team has announced.
The 41 year old, who left Team Sky at the end of last season after admitting to doping during his career as a rider, will consult on training, coaching, equipment testing and performance strategies, and work closely with Performance Manager Allan Peiper.
"I love the sport of cycling and feel I have a lot to offer," said Julich, who was a former team-mate of Lance Armstrong and placed third in the 1998 Tour de France before moving into coaching upon his retirement as a rider in 2008.
"I'm really happy and excited the BMC Racing Team is giving me an opportunity to pass my experience along."
BMC's General Manager Jim Ochowicz said. "We are excited to have Bobby join our performance team and look forward to working with him."
Peiper added: "I am really excited with Bobby's involvement and his ideas on coaching and on the streamlining of our training department."
