In his fourth year in blue-fuchsia-green team, Przemyslaw Niemiec obtained a stunning victory in the stage of Lagos de Covadonga in Vuelta a Espana. A beautiful reward for a stainless cyclist, who always gave his support to the team and who always realized top performances, especially on mountains races.

 

Lampre Merida management had no doubt in extending the contract of the Polish rider for the next two years.

 

Niemiec was born in Oswiecim (Poland) in 1980 and he became a pro rider in 2002: in his career he obtained 13 victories until 2011, when he signed for Saronni's team, making is debut in the World Tour.

 

In the four seasons in World Tour, he mostly ride as domestique of the captains in grand tours, but he was able to add some personal highlights, such as the 6th place in the final overall classification in Giro d'Italia 2013 and the victory in Lagos de Covadonga in Vuelta a Espana 2014.
Recently, Niemiec gave his help to national team mate Kwiatkowski in winning the world champion title in Ponferrada 2014.

 

"Wer're very happy to go on counting on Niemiec for many reasons linked to his qualities - team manager Brent Copeland explains - He's a generous cyclist that can join grind and rare skills as climber. Moreover, he's always at the top of the fit when there are important appointments. 
That's why he's so important as supported of the captains and as a benchmakr for younger riders.

 

The prolongation of his contract maintain the continuity with the project of roster we started last winter: in the roster there are very skilful cyclists, we're proud to confirm them in the team".
