For several seasons, the Rally UHC Cycling pro continental team has been the dominant force in the North American peloton, while also taking some incredible results abroad. This year, as in years past, the squad converged near the Santa Monica Mountains in Southern California to kick off a new racing season. For pro riders, early season training camps provide the opportunity to meet up with old teammates after a much deserved winter break, bond with new team members, perform some early season base mile rides, and, perhaps most exciting of all, test ride their new bikes and gear. For 2019, Rally UHC Cycling has joined forces with Felt, and both men's and women's contingents of the powerhouse North American squad will ride the FR Disc road bike in road events and the DA time trial bike in races against the clock. Here's a look behind the scenes at the men's early season training camp rides as the riders prepare to take on the best teams in the world throughout the upcoming season.
