Bahrain-Merida has signed Jan Tratnik. The rider is a time trial specialist that can also perform in other terrains.

Tratnik was at the WorldTour level for the last time in 2011 when he was in 2011. In 2019 he will return to the highest level after spending two years at CCC Sprandi Polkowice.

"Team Bahrain Merida is one of the best teams which operates at a high level and develops rapidly," the rider commented. "I'm very happy to be a part of this story. I would like to thank the team management who believes in me and has allowed me to be back in the World Tour.

"In this team, I will get everything I need for my progress and I will do everything to return with good results and contribute to team success."

The Slovenian's palmares includes victories at the Tour de Slovaquie, the Volta Limburg Classic, the East Bohemia Tour and the Individual Time Trial of the National Championships, a title he took in 2015 and 2018.

"The team expects that he will advance and help on the Belgian classics," said Gorazd Stangelj, head of sports directors at Bahrain-Merida. "His way of racing is quite aggressive, but we know his escapes can also be successful.

"In the time trial, his help and added value in team races will be welcomed."
