Ride with the Team in Bahrain
Manama, 2nd February – Team Bahrain Merida organized a bike ride for local fans and sports enthusiasts that joined our star athletes, Vincenzo Nibali, Sonny Colbrelli, Borut Božič, David Per, Ivan Garcia Cortina and Kristijan Koren, this morning for a 40 km long ride.
In a sunny, although a little windy day, 200 athletes rode 40 km from Sofitel Zallaq to the Bahrain International Circuit, where they made 2 circles, and on to the stables, where horse riders escorted them for about 10 km.
After the ride, local riders and fans had a chance to take some photos of our professional riders and ask for their authographs. It was a very pleasant, relaxed and fun ride, and a great chance for all fans to be close to their idols.
A special thanks for the organization of the event goes to Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa from Bahrain Cycling Association, Bahrain Olympic Comitee, and Bahrain Police, without whom the event would not have been possible.
We also want to thank all the sponsors that contributed to this event: Bin Hindi Motors, Lulu Hypermarket, Power Up Magazine, TriLife, Sofitel, Viva, Elite.
More events with Team Bahrain Merida will be announced soon.
