Ochowicz on masschallenge

Bella is an Italian greyhound who likes to go for bike rides. Her favorite bike is the BMC masschallenge owned by Jim Ochowicz, the president and general manager of BMC Racing Team. Jim’s daughter Elli is pictured above taking Bella for a spin. Elli, Bella and the Ochowicz family members all use the bike for running errands and pedaling to their favorite lunch spots. House guests also use it to get in a workout while visiting. But the favorite use is for taking Bella out for some fresh air.

Gates Carbon Drive is an official supplier of the BMC Racing Team and provides the squad with BMC Lifestyle bikes featuring Gates Carbon Drive. The BMC Racing Team is the only UCI pro tour team with an official lifestyle/commuter bike. Bella is the only dog with an official lifestyle bike.


If you’ve got a little pooch you’d like to put in the panniers, check out the BMC urbanchallenge below. This is the same bike that the BMC Racing Team has on all its team trucks. Bella says you’ll love it.
