The McLaren Group claims that the aim is”to be the best in professional cycling” after signing a contract to become a 50% partner at the Bahrain Merida team.
McLaren has a team in Formula 1 and therefore are among the very famous titles in motor sport.
The statement comes on precisely exactly the same day broadcaster Sky said it is to withdraw backing Team Sky by the close of 2019.
Bahrain Merida has been founded in 2017 and has 2014 Tour de France winner Vincenzo Nibali as a member of its team.
“Cycling is something we have been involved with in the past and also have been looking at entering for some time,” stated McLaren chief marketing officer John Allert.
“Racing, human and technology performance are at the heart of everything we do at McLaren.”
