Team Bahrain Victorious, together with its partners, will inspire riders and fans through our passion for the sport.
Welcome to a new era of cycling. Welcome to Team Bahrain Victorious.
The transition to Team Bahrain Victorious in 2021 represents an exciting new chapter in the team’s journey which will expedite its vision to showcase the ambition and optimism of the Kingdom of Bahrain to the world. The inclusion of Victorious into the team’s name serves as a constant reminder of its goal to achieve success at the highest level both on and off the bike.
The performance-first ethos instilled during the 2020 season was evident through the team’s five top-ten finishes across the Grand Tours. Team Bahrain Victorious carries over this ethos and spirit of optimism which is symbolized by the striking blue touches on the new kit design, which additionally celebrates the national colour of Bahrain.
To complement the existing rider line-up which includes Mikel Landa, Pello Bilbao, Wout Poels, Dylan Teuns, Sonny Colbrelli and Matej Mohoric, the team has signed Jack Haig, Jonathan Milan and Gino Mäder.
The team’s founder, His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa commented: “Cycling is one of the most challenging sports which requires dedication, discipline and perseverance. It’s these values that are needed to take on endurance sports which are capable of promoting a better lifestyle for all. Team Bahrain Victorious will reflect our vision for building a performance-first team that aims to inspire and win at the highest level.”
His Highness is an avid sportsman who found his passion for cycling through triathlon and launched a series of initiatives to endorse cycling, including the Bahrain Cycling Academy which nurtures and develops local talent and reduces the barriers to participation.
The team’s strong connection to the Kingdom of Bahrain is represented by the proud support of the Bahrain Economic Development Board, Bapco, Batelco, National Bank of Bahrain and Alba amongst many others.
The Kingdom of Bahrain has been involved in UCI WorldTour cycling since 2017 with the support of MERIDA BIKES, who will continue to be an integral partner of the team, supplying race-winning bikes and continuous innovation.
