I found here a really great group to work, all the staff are very professional people and I feel here like at home. Also, the group of riders we have is absolutely fantastic. Despite some difficult moments during the season we always were trying to pass it together, keeping high our motivation. In the second part of the season we could demonstrate that we are a really strong team. I wished so much to extend with this amazing team and now I am happy. In the new season I want to keep on working, to keep on improving. I feel a confidence from the side of the team and this is very important for me, - said Pello Bilbao.
