In 2016 and 2017 LAMPRE-MERIDA's roster will be enriched by a pure winner. Team manager Brent Copeland signed Marko Kump, the Slovenian sprinter who has won 18 races this season, in addition to 4 second places and to 3 third positions.

He was born in Novo Mesto on 9/9/1988 and he became pro in 2007, obtaining 30 successes in his career and prestigious victories as Under 23, among others the Tour des Flandres espoirs and one stage in the Tour de l'Avenir.


His actual team is the Slovenian group Adria Mobil and on Sunday, in Richmond, he'll be one of the most important riders for the Slovenian National Team in the World Championships. When he'll be back from the USA, he'll meet the management and the medical staff from LAMPRE-MERIDA to definitely confirm the transfer to the team.

Team manager Brent Copeland explained that: "For us at Team LAMPRE-MERIDA it's a honor to welcome the second most winning rider in 2015.

 

"Thanks to 18 successes, Kump is just behind Kristoff: we're sure he'll be able to confirm all his qualities in our team too, also because he has already had a past experience in the World Tour.


"He will complete the group of sprinters and he won't have problem to get settled into the team, also because he has already worked with sports director Philippe Mauduit, who has explained all his good skills"

"It was great to receive an offer for a transfer in a top team as LAMPRE-MERIDA: as soon as I got offer from them, I didn’t hesitate for a second, because working and racing on such a high level has always been my goal," Kump explained. "In the past, I spent two years in Saxo-Tinkoff, learning a lot about racing in the WorldTour, so I think I'm ready to help the team in achieving ambitious goals. 

 

"I thank LAMPRE-MERIDA and their sponsors and I also say thanks to my current team, which gave me the opportunities to demonstrate my skills".
