Experienced sports director and former French pro cyclist Philippe Mauduit has signed to be one of the sports directors in BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team. 

 

Mauduit, born 1968 in France, has been involved in the world of professional cycling almost all his life. After his professional career, he stayed tightly connected with his favorite sport.

 

In 2003, after retiring from racing, he started his new career as a member of the management of the Nippo Hoddo team. Until now, he has worked for seven different professional teams and gained a great deal of experience as a sports director. He will be one of six sport directors in the BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team and a major player in preparing strategy and tactics for the team.

 

Brent Copeland, General Manager of the BAHRAIN MERIDA PRO CYCLING TEAM, expressed his thoughts:

 

“Philippe is one of the most experienced sports directors in all of the professional cycling teams. We are very happy to have him as an important asset in the team. Not only is he very good at organizing and arranging the necessities that the sports directors have to do on an everyday basis but he has an exceptional image in the sport of cycling. On top of this he has worked closely with some of the world's most important cyclists and with this experience we are very optimistic that Philippe will make an important contribution to the already impressive technical staff of the team."

 

After signing the contract Mauduit commented:

 

”I had a wonderful time with Team Lampre Merida where I had the chance to work with a great family and a very professional staff as well as great riders. I deeply thank all of them for the nice time and racing we had together. Being part of the BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team is a new challenge for all of us. After the few informal talks, I had with team managers and Merida during the Tour de France I knew that they were building a strong project and I simply couldn't refuse the chance that the team offered me. On top of the project challenge in BAHRAIN MERIDA we already have a great bunch of riders and I'm convinced that we will find our own way in the cycling world between the greatest.”
