VALERIO AGNOLI

Italian rider Valerio Agnoli has signed for Bahrain Merida Pro Cycling for the 2017 season, becoming the tenth announced cyclist of the new team. The current Astana rider will join his teammate Vincenzo Nibali at this new project.

"I'm really proud to be involved in this project. I believe that new investors in cycling are very much needed and so everybody has to welcome Bahrain first of all for this reason. A project that I appreciate because it goes beyond cycling, presenting the good image of the Kingdom and its commitment to sport with the purpose of a healthy lifestyle," said Agnoli.

The rider is happy to join Nibali at the new team because the two Italians have a close friendship.

"I have to thank Nibali, who wanted me to be involved in this new team together with him. Between us the cycling relationship is a minimal part, because we are above all true friends also with our families and we trust each other. I‘ll give the 1000% not to let him down.

"As usual I will be happier for a success of Vincenzo, than for my personal result. I'll give everything for him."

The team's General Manager Brent Copeland added that Bahrain Merida is satisfied with this new signing. "Having Valerio on the team signifies having a stamp of guarantee as an asset for the team, he is one of the most loyal teammates in the peloton, a classy rider who will help wherever needed as well as have when given his own space always delivers what is asked of him.

"The thing with Valerio is that you have the perfect combination of loyalty together with experience and mixing these qualities together into one rider only bears good fruit for the team in general, myself and the teams technical staff are very pleased to have him as being part of the team."
