From Costa to Costa: Mario Jorge in LAMPRE-MERIDA

For 2015 season, Team LAMPRE-MERIDA doubled the Faria Da Costa.
In addition to Rui Alberto Faria Da Costa, in the next season the team’s sport director will rely on Mario Jorge Faria Da Costa (photo), who’s the brother of the former world champion.

Mario Costa was born in Povoa de Varzim (Portugal) on 15 November 1985 and he turned pro in 2008, demonstrating during his career good skills on flat course and in time trial, giving his best in the support of the team’s captains.
Despite the fact that he always worked for helping the team mates, in 2011 he obtained the second place in the Portuguese road championship.

LAMPRE-MERIDA roster for 2015 will have one more rider that will work for the captains, with a special regard to Rui Costa, with whom Mario Costa has a natural feeling that will be useful during the race.
The Portuguese cyclist can give an additional value on flat courses, just want the sport directors was searching for.

It’s such a pride and statisfaction for me to wear in 2015 the colors of LAMPRE-MERIDA – Mario Costa commented – I will do my best to honor this opportunity, I’ll work hard daily to meet the target that the team will propose to me.
I thank the team, the sponsors and the team manager Copeland for this opportunity: it will be exciting to fight in support of my brother Rui in his attempts of achieving top results“.
