Hermann Pernsteiner extends contract with Team BAHRAIN MERIDA
BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team is happy to announce that Hermann Pernsteiner has prolonged his contract by two years through 2020 season.
“I’m really excited to renew my contract with Team BAHRAIN MERIDA” says the 27-year-old Austrian rider, who made his debut at the World Tour with our team in 2018, definitively moving from mountain bike to road racing. “The team believes in me and this high confidence gives me a lot of motivation to continue to work hard and to improve for bringing some great results. Here it’s like a second family to me and I’m very pleased to extend my contract for two years more”.
Pernsteiner showed his promise in his first races with the team and impressed with the win at the GP Lugano, that followed the outstanding performance in the hardest stage of Tour of Japan, where he took second atop Mount Fuji and finished second overall.
BAHRAIN MERIDA General Manager, Brent Copeland: “Hermann really impressed us so far. When we signed him, we knew that he was a talented climber, but we dare say that his performance and results exceeded all of our expectations. Now we’re proud to give him further opportunities to continue to gain experience and to show his potential. We believe that he will give his great support to the captains in mountain stages, but above all we are sure that he can still surprise us in the years to come”.
