Chun-Kai Feng is the next rider who has confirmed to be part of BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team in their first season.

 

27-year-old Feng is a Taiwanese professional road and track cyclist who joined the UCI WorldTour three years ago and became the first Taiwanese rider to ride at that level. He represented as a 19-year-old junior at the 2008 Summer Olympics and later won numerous medals in track cycling, specifically in the men's points race and individual pursuit, at the Asian Championships. Feng has also claimed five Taiwanese national titles in road cycling, and a prestigious gold medal at the 2013 East Asian Games in Tianjin, China.

 

"I am happy, and I look forward to joining Bahrain-Merida. I want to make progress in this strong team, and I will do my best helping my teammates in the races. It's my third year in World Tour, my main target is to take part in a Grand Tour, and I will work harder to fulfill my dream," said a satisfied and enthusiastic Feng after signing with BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team.

 

Brent Copeland, General manager of the BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team said:

 

“Feng is the best Taiwanese road and track cyclist, he is one of the most dedicated riders in the pro peloton and I have personally worked with him in the past few seasons and the amount of dedication he gives to his job shows just how much he is a true professional, he has a very good ability of getting into the breakaway groups and always takes on this job. He is always available to help wherever needed. I believe that 2017 will be a year of a difference for him where he will make his dream come true and get to ride in one of the Grand Tours. Bringing Feng into the team also shows our philosophy of having an international team which we feel is important in today's day of cycling. We are very proud to see the Taiwanese flag flown high in the peloton through Feng with our team.”
