The end after 16 successful years

After 16 successful years, MERIDA has finished their support of the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM and has stepped away from Olympic Cross Country Racing (XCO).

More than 30 World Cup wins, 15 World Championship titles, 15 European and countless national titles as well as an Olympic Gold and Silver medal has made the team the most successful UCI Mountain Bike team of all times.

The team is looking back at more than one and a half decades of successful international racing where the outstanding team spirit was one of the most prominent features.


The whole MERIDA family is indebted to the team riders, the support crew and the management team for flying the MERIDA flag so successfully over such a long period of time.

MERIDA wishes all athletes and team members the best in their future endeavours.

To document the amazing achievements of the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM, a photo book will be released in the new year which can be downloaded via the MERIDA website.
