Rohan Dennis (Bahrain-Merida) used the 2019 Tour of California as part of his preparations for the Tour de France in July, while teammate Vincenzo Nibali flies the flag for the team at the Giro d’Italia.

Dennis signed for Bahrain-Merida last season while the future of BMC Racing was in doubt, having spent five seasons racing for Jim Ochowicz’s team, and he now has the bike choice of the aerodynamic Merida Reacto, lightweight Merida Scultura plus the Merida Time Warp for time trialling instead of his previous BMC framesets.

Bahrain-Merida pair their framesets with drivetrain and braking components from Shimano and run an SRM Origin power meter-equipped crankset.

The all-black framesets roll on Fulcrum Speed wheels while FSA and Prologo provides the team with the majority of their finishing kit.
