Team Bahrain Merida will participate in 25th anniversary of Tour of Slovenia
Team Bahrain Merida with many Slovenian riders in this year’s roaster will participate in traditional race from 13th to 17th of June with 5 stages from Lendava through Štajerska region to a capital of Dolenjska region Novo mesto where they will finish the race with an individual time trial. Tour of Slovenia is the largest and most popular cycling event in Slovenia and every year attracts more and more people. The very first Tour of Slovenia was organized in May 1993.
Team’s Sports director Gorazd Štangelj shared his expectations: “Leader of the race will change on each stage. In the first stage, we expect that Bonifazio and Matej could sprint at the finish, we expect that on the last climb on the castle to Celje Grega could be in the front, in Kamnik the best could be Domen and Matej. We have three helpers in the team Valerio, Borut and David. The race will be interesting and our team is ready to get any stage this year. After 4thstage we will most probably already have the GC leader of the race, since the last stage is individual time trial. We hope Matej will be on the top of the general classification.”
Riders selected for Tour of Slovenia are: Agnoli Valerio, Bole Grega, Bonifazio Niccoló, Božič Borut, Mohorič Matej, Novak Domen and Per David.
