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.

The all-new AR has arrived. We wanted it to not only be the most aerodynamic road bike we'd ever created, but also to climb well, to be comfortable enough for a long day in the saddle, and, most importantly, to descend like a dream. So when the first batch of bikes were built up, we wasted no time in taking them to one of our favorite proving grounds: the iconic Gibraltar Road in the city of Santa Barbara.
