UAE-Team Emirates' Matej Mohoric is joining Bahrain-Merida at the start of the 2018 season. The rider is set to improve his skills at the team.

The 22 year old Slovenian turned professional in 2014 and has achieved impressive results in non-elite races like the Junior and the U23 World Championships.

"Although he has already been a pro for four seasons, he is still young at the age of 22 with a creative and exciting mind on the bike. Putting this together with his enthusiasm it makes a perfect match for our team," said General Director Brent Copeland. "I have personally worked together with Matej in the past and know that he is one of the most intelligent riders in the group. We believe Matej has a vast amount of margin for improvement and has yet to show us what his true potential is.

"We are sure Matej will find a solid and professional group of teammates and staff members at Bahrain-Merida, which will help him develop into the true talent that we all know he has. We welcome him and all look forward to supporting him with all his needs to help him achieve his goals."

Mohoric is looking forward to working with the team. "“I have a feeling that Bahrain-Merida believes in me as a rider and that they could help me make a step up, to grow and develop even further," he commented.

"I am still only 22 years old and have winning ambitions in the future. It is a great motivation for me to go to one of the best teams in the world. I look forward to a good preparation for 2018 and a year where I will give my best in cycling."
