BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team wishes Vincenzo Nibali the best of luck for the future.
Thursday, 8th August – BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team is grateful for the three successful years of its partnership with one of the greatest cyclists of our time, Vincenzo Nibali. ‘The Shark’ has represented BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team’s colours on three Grand Tour podiums and achieved many other remarkable results with the support of the team and its world-class technical and sponsor partners, led by Merida.
Vincenzo, one of only seven cyclists in history to win all three Grand Tours, was the first rider to sign with the newly established BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team. In 2017, the team’s debut season, ‘The Shark’ stood on three Grand Tour podiums – twice at the Giro d’Italia and once at the Vuelta a España – in the team’s red, blue and gold colours. Together we have achieved many great results since then, including the breakthrough win at the iconic Milan San Remo classic, an amazing win at the Giro di Lombardia and most recently on the challenging slopes of Val Thorens, winning Stage 20 of this year’s Tour de France.
Our team members and riders are honoured to have worked with such great talent. Vincenzo was one of the first people to believe in the BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team vision and we wish him the best of luck in all of his future endeavours, both on and off the bike.
Grazie di tutto, Vincenzo.
