It has been the second season for 22 years old Spanish cyclist Iván Garcia Cortina in Team Bahrain Merida. He is one of the most talented young riders in the world. In the team they see his huge potential for development, especially in classics and in helping other sprinters. In the last two season, since Iván is a part of the team, he showed a good performance and also achieved good results. He is a great team-mate, always in a good mood and optimistic with a big smile on his face. Iván brings a good atmosphere in the team.
General manager of the team Brent Copeland told us: “Ivan is a truly talented rider who we, at Team Bahrain Merida, believe he has a very good margin of improvement and we will do all we can to help him achieve his goals. We have seen how dedicated he has been to his profession and we think that his ability can be seen in various areas and roles in the team. Although Iván is very fond of the Belgium classics, we are very happy to announce the renewal of his contract for another two years. We are sure that all fans will be just as pleased with this news as we are, especially the Spanish followers of our team.”
Iván Cortina commented on his contract renewal for another two years during his racing at Vuelta a España: “Yes, Team Bahrain Merida is the best team for me to improve and learn in all of most important races of the UCI calendar, like the classics, and I’m very happy to continue in the team for 2 more years with all of this amazing staff and team mates.”
