Young Spanish road cyclist Iván García Cortina will represent BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team jersey in the coming season.


Iván García Cortina, born 1995 in Gijonis is a Spanish talented road rider. In 2012 he was Junior National Champion. He joined the professional cycling world in 2015. In the last two seasons he achieved many top ten places what marks him out as a talented rider. BAHRAIN MERIDA's vision is to have an international team and the young Spanish cyclist fits in well. Besides that the team’s vision is to develop and work on the young talents to prepare them and bring them to the highest level of professional cycling.


Cortina commented on signing with BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team:


"I'm so happy to join this new team for the next two years. It's a great opportunity for me and to increase my experience riding with such champions and super stars like Vincenzo Nibali. I'm looking forward to the first training camp to meet and know my new team-mates. With some of them I raced sometimes, like Gasparotto, winner of the last Amstel Gold Race, he too is a great rider. It will be nice to be in the same team as these guys".


General Manager of BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team Brent Copeland said:


“Its very exciting to have a Spanish cyclist on team BAHRAIN MERIDA, once again showing the internationality that we invest into with the team. We started taking a close look at Iván when he had some really good results at the Czech Tour where he got three top ten results. For a stagiaire, this was something that showed his quality. His consistent results at the Tour de l’Avenir were just as impressive. The thing that we liked the most about Iván is his consistency in the team time trials he took part in. This is an important part of today's cycling where Iván will definitely be a big asset to the team. At a very young age of twenty we are wanting Iván to learn slowly and we will help him grow into the pro cyclist he deserves to be.”
