He is a two-time National Junior Champion and two-time National Under-23 Time Trial Champion 2013 and 2015.

After the first camp, Per said:


“Team spent our first three days together in a beautiful Valamar Diamant Hotel where we all enjoyed our first meeting. The hotel offers professional sports services and facilities, a beautiful SPA area with pool and modern hotel gym where we had a chance to spent great time together. I have a very positive feeling of the team, we got along very well, everybody is very joyful, motivated and focused and we had so much fun together with a lot of laugh and good vibe. I feel great and I expect a successful season. I know I have to learn a lot and that is a team where I will for sure get the best out of it from my experienced team-mates. I will give my best to help the team and to my team-mates that we as BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling team will be successful."


Domen Novak, at his age of 21, is a young Slovenian rider who won the white jersey at the Tour of Croatia and finished 6th at the same Tour. His 3rd place at Tour of Malopolska gives a definite sign that his new team can expect great results from the talent in the coming season.

“I am positively surprised due to the big names from the cycling world in our team. My team-mates who are big stars accepted me generously and I feel great to be part of such a big team. The team is organized very well from the every single aspect. I think we have all what we will need next year to achieve great results. My personal goal is to help as much as I can to the team and to get as much experiences as possible from my great team-mates.”
