Since 2004, the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM has been scoring over 30 World Cup wins as well as Olympic gold and silver medals. Their impressive list of success also includes ten World and eleven European Championship titles (respectively), several 2nd ranks and bronze medals. But MERIDA’s professional riders do not only support our company’s reputation by stellar performance – at the same time, they fulfil another very important role as test pilots.

The top athletes of MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM are always provided with the latest equipment for testing it up to the edge of capacity during training. In return, they provide us with tons of practical input regarding handling, details and safety. When our MULTIVAN riders finally absolve competitions in the saddle of brand-new MERIDA bikes, they can rely on completely optimized configurations. This guarantees that achieved stiffness and effectively superior handling qualify our products for the most challenging situations.

In consequence, MERIDA users always benefit directly from our sportive dedication and success. Our main objective is to meet riders’ individual demands in the best possible way for complete customer satisfaction. That’s why the dream job of MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM members represents all-out commitment on each and every level.


The Multivan stands for limitless leisure and sport mobility. The large capacity limousine is a practical and indispensable transporter for people who love trend sports such as cycling and surfing. With its flexible inner space concept the Multivan provides enough room for all the bicycle racing equipment anyone could need.

«Merida is the ideal partner for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. Both produce high-quality products and are among the world's most successful teams in their branch of industry», according to Stephan Schaller, brand board speaker for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
