Behind The Scenes At The Rally UHC Cycling Women's Team Camp

For the past few years every January, the Rally UHC Cycling pro continental team has converged near the Santa Monica Mountains in Southern California to kick off a new racing season. It's the perfect time to meet up with old teammates after a much deserved winter break, ingratiate new team members into the squad, 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 women's squad's early season rides as they prepare to take on the world's best teams throughout the upcoming season.

It was the start of what should prove to be a successful season for the rising star.

BIKE SIZING

Getting the proper size bike is key to comfort, performance, and safety. The world's best bike, if the wrong size for you, won't make you a better rider.
Our bike sizing guide is meant to give some general direction as to the best size to fit you based on your height. This is just one variable in a very complex system between rider and bike so keep in mind that rider proportions, fitness levels, and other aspects particular to the individual cyclist has a big impact on how you'll feel and perform on your new bike. Our size guidelines are not a substitute for a professional bike fit. If you have size questions, please don't hesitate to visit your local qualified bike fitter or reach out to us.
