Rider: SINDRE BJERKESTRAND HAUGSVAER
" I am very happy to join MPC for the second half of the 2019-season. Excited to do some new races, where I believe the team will perform well. Tour of Qinghai Lake (2.HC) will for sure be a big goal, and I think we have a complete team. I hope to return to China in September for Tour of China, and hopefully better my 8th GC-position in Tour of China 2."
Rider: Hugo Forssell
" I am very happy to have joined the team. I had some great success on the road this year and I believe that joining Memil Pro Cycling is the perfect step for my continued development as a rider. My first race with the team will be Tour of Qinghai Lake. I am looking forward to the TTT which I believe we have a really strong team for and we will be able to contest for the win. I am also looking forward to the ITT were I hope I can deliver a good result. Furthermore I want to help our GC-guys for a good overall result and also the team to try and win one of the sprint stages."
Team Owner Fredrik Strid addition:
"I’m delighted to welcome Sindre & Hugo to Memil Pro Cycling.
Sindre's characteristics as a rider will be important for the team's results, both for the GC result and for the individual stages. "
Hugo is a tactical rider who is in the right place when it comes to a final. Will run into a supporting role for our sprinter. Where I look and hope he can grow into the lead role for the future."
