Valamar Diamant Hotel 4* in Poreč will be hosting the first official training camp of BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team from October 25 to 28.  The training camp will be attended by the riders, sport directors, doctors, technical staff and management in order for everyone to start to plan and prepare for the 2017 season.


The final roster of BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team, selected with the goal of creating a successful team that is motivated by a need for constant progress will be revealed during the training camp in Poreč, at the team’s first official press conference that will be held in Valamar Diamant Hotel.


Captain of the team is Vincenzo Nibali, who is surrounded by a roster of talented riders, such as Heinrich Haussler, Grega Bole, Manuele Boaro, Giovanni Visconti, Sonny Colbrelli, Luka Pibernik, Feng Chun-kai, Enrico Gasparotto, Niccolò Bonifazio, Iván García Cortina, Valerio Agnoli, Ion Izaguirre and others to be announced.


“This training camp is very important first step in getting the team acquainted with each other, the entire staff and team procedures, sponsors and other partners. Riders will discuss the schedule, rules and procedures, means of communication and all other important facts regarding the team. Sponsors will have a chance to meet all the riders and to take their measures to be ready with the equipment later in December for the next training camp. What makes me really proud is the fact that our co-title sponsor MERIDA will present three bikes for the new season, making it another exclusive announcement during our training camp. We chose to come to Poreč and the Valamar Riviera group because it is the ideal location and Valamar Diamant offers top world class facilities that meet our high standards”, said Brent Copeland, General Manager of the team.


“This is a very important event for Istria, Poreč, Valamar Riviera, and in general for positioning Croatia on the global map of cycling. Taking into consideration the position, climate and the terrain , we have a great potential to become one of the top destinations for big cycling events. A good example is Mallorca whose income heavily relies on road cycling, especially in the months leading up to the main summer season. When I say this, I do not only mean the numerous cycling teams, but the cycling enthusiasts who follow their idols and various researches show that those kind of guests prefer higher quality hotel accommodation and are willing to spend on different tourist products and services", stated Vladimir Miholjević, sports and technical director of Top Sports Events, the company that organizes Tour of Croatia and assistant sport director of BMPCT in 2017 and a training camp coordinator.
