Australia's world road race champion Cadel Evans has agreed to ride for the American BMC Racing cycling Team, two days after ending his five-year association with Belgian team Silence Lotto.

He has signed a 3-year deal and feels he will now be better placed to win a big tour.

The 32-year-old Evans won the world road race title in Switzerland at the end of September and has twice finished second in the Tour de France.
