BMC currently sponsors the BMC Racing Team, whose leader, All-Rounder Cadel Evans won the 2011 Tour de France, the BMC Mountain Bike Racing Team as well as the BMC Factory Trailcrew.

It is shown on anime and manga from the series as some characters bikes during the races. Due to the fact of being an existing manufacturer in the real world, it must have been used as a tribute by the author.
