Next step in our mission
October 6th, 2017, Manama – Being a Bahrain’s team supported by numerous Bahraini sponsors and local community, we are determined to develop a Bahraini rider for our team in next 5 years targeting to ride the best World Tour races. Bahrain Cycling Association led by president Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad al Khalifa will be our partner in reaching our goal. The young riders were tested yesterday by Bahrain Merida’s coach who saw a lot of potential in test results from Bahrain’s best 12 young riders. Later in the day, Bahrain Merida in collaboration with Bahrain Cycling Association held coaching and nutritional clinic attended by many local riders and coaches with some triathletes and recreational cyclists too. To close the great and productive day in the best possible tone, we presented Bahrain Merida bikes to Bahrain Cycling Association stating that this is only the beginning in reaching our joint goal. Developing a great local rider who will be riding World Tour races takes time and persistence but with the right integration of our training structure, right nutritional plan combined with young riders’ passion and love for this sport the whole journey looks very promising.
