Rally Cycling Cruises into 2018 Season

Rally Cycling women's team riding in a group by the ocean in California

A few weeks ago, the Rally Cycling team got together at a team training camp in California to fine-tune the legs and build some camaraderie before the season opener in Spain. 2017 was a break-out year for both the men’s and women’s Rally Cycling squads: Together they won nine national championships in the US and Canada and took the overall win at five top stage races in North America. 2018 marks the team’s third season aboard Diamondback bikes.
