2 Taiwanese interns join Team Colpack this summer!
An exciting project is happening.
Named after our Taiwanese rider Chun Kai Feng (CK), “Next CK project” held by Merida is meant to create this great opportunity for local cyclists in Taiwan. On August 4th, Chia Hao Wang and Chien Chou Chen arrived Team Colpack’s headquarter in Bergamo for internship this summer. This is a milestone in their professional career.
With the full support of Team Colpack, our development team, the chosen 2 are going to join the training and races in Europe as interns for one and half month. Holding this great project, Merida will support their equipment and all expense during the project, contributing to the development for riders in the next generation.
Just before their departure, 3 stagier riders from Team Colpack are joining us for the rest of the 2017 season, once again echoed the core value of Team Bahrain-Merida – We are playing an important role working with the young and talented riders, and making our team as international as possible.
As we all know, there’s no better way to cultivate these talented riders than taking them to Europe. We are willing to be part of the project, and we look forward to their valuable experience benefiting the riders in whole Asian cycling communities by working with Team Colpack, a team with huge professionality.
“The development of young riders is a very important area for us at Bahrain Merida,” says our general manager Brent Copeland.
“We invest a lot on building young cyclists, and this project is something that we all take very seriously, not only for the young riders in general but also the international riders such as Chia Hao Wang and Chien Chou Chen of Taiwan who we believe will have this opportunity to show themselves through this fantastic experience in Europe.”
“We are excited about seeing this project progress and we are forever thankful to our feeder team Colpack for the professional support on helping young riders develop into the professional ranks, the professional and precise way in which they run their team is something that we admire and respect, hence the reason we take pleasure in working together and doing these projects to keep growing towards the future, as well as a huge thank you to our main partners Merida who fully support, believe in and invest in the development of young international riders; without them, these kind of opportunities would not be possible. We send a warm welcome to Chen and Wang and hope they enjoy their stay and make the most of this experience.”
