Mohoric won seven races in 2018 including the overall classification in the BinckBank Tour and the Deutschland Tour, and a Giro d'Italia stage. "With Bahrain Merida, I've had the best year of my career so far," the rider commented. "I made a crucial step in my career here and I feel really good in this team.

"So I’m very proud to stay here longer and be part of this team in the future. Plans are to focus on one-day Classics. I became a really good rider on this kind of races. Next strategies will be to make a step forward as a GC rider. I will need some more years of experience for sure, but I would grow up to fight for Grand Tours overall as well".
