Bahrain Victorious are pleased to announce the signing of young Slovenian rider Matevž Govekar from Tirol KTM Cycling Team from the 1st of June.
The midseason jump up to the WorldTour for the 22-year-old is an exciting step for a rider who is considered an all-rounder with a fast finish.” I’m super excited to be joining Team Bahrain Victorious now in the middle of the season, and I will use the remaining time to gain experience and learn from the experienced riders and staff in the team.”
Tirol KTM Cycling Team General Manager, Thomas Pupp, is pleased for Matevz on this major career step and adds: “Matevz really deserves this ticket to the WorldTour. He is highly talented, focused, smart and one of the fastest young men in Europe. With Bahrain Victorious, he has also found the best environment for himself. But Matevž’s move to the WorldTour is also a great success for us as a U23 development team because it confirms our reputation as a springboard for young talents. We wish Matevž all the best.”
