Like so very many, we were heartbroken to have learned of the passing of Kelly Catlin. Kelly was a beloved member of the Felt Bicycles family, the Rally UHC Cycling professional team, the USA Cycling track racing program, and the worldwide cycling community.
Kelly was an instrumental part of the USA Cycling track team in recent years, having helped propel the women’s Team Pursuit squad to an Olympic silver medal in 2016, as well as three consecutive rainbow jerseys at the UCI Track World Championships in 2016, 2017, and 2018. She also captured two medals on her own in the Individual Pursuit event at the World Championships. She joined the Rally UHC Cycling professional race team in 2017, and over the past few months, was preparing for an ambitious road racing campaign in 2019.
Beyond her accomplishments in racing, Kelly was exceptionally intelligent and hard-working, and was working towards her graduate degree in Computational Mathematics at Stanford University. Most importantly, Kelly was also incredibly kind, giving, and sincere.
Kelly will always have a special place in the hearts of members of the #feltfamily. Our deepest condolences go out to Kelly’s family members and friends during this tragic time.

Over the past few seasons, Rally UHC Cycling has created one of the best traditions in all of pro cycling. Each year at the Tour of California, the team creates several unique, custom-painted race bikes for select riders. They're then auctioned off with all proceeds going towards an incredible charity.

Daniela Ryf kicked off her 2019 racing season by taking on an event she had never raced before: Ironman 70.3 Oceanside. Daniela soared to a first place finish while also setting a new course record. A few days later, Daniela visited Felt Bicycles headquarters, located nearby in Southern California.
