“Last year we refocused the program on the development of young riders, with great success,” said Performance Manager Jonas Carney.

“The 2017 season will continue this direction with the addition of several talented new riders. The team is excited to add to the strong core group of riders that are returning. This years team is one of the strongest we have ever assembled on the women’s side, and we look to be a factor in races while helping to develop the best young female cyclists in North America.”

Former pro Zach Bell will return as sport director.

“With a positive team environment and structure already established, Rally Cycling will help them progress and reach their full potential as athletes,” said Bell. “With returning riders like Erica, Sara, Emma and Kirsti, we have proven strength with room to grow. To complement their strengths, we added several new riders that have already shown the ability to race at a high level.
