Rally Cycling is proud to announce the signing of Junior World Time Trial Champion Brandon McNulty. The 18-year-old is one of the most promising up-and-coming riders in the world and has already proven to be a factor in the peloton. In addition to his rainbow jersey, McNulty has amassed an impressive palmarés that includes Junior Nations' Cup races, two national individual time trial titles and a team time trial national title with the LUX Development Team.
The addition of McNulty completes Rally Cycling's 2017 men's roster. New signees joining him for the 2017 season include 2016 Redlands Bicycle Classic winner Matteo Dal-Cin and Tour of Alberta stage winner Colin Joyce. The trio will join a roster that remains largely unchanged from 2016. Returning to Rally Cycling will be noted general classification riders Rob Britton, Evan Huffman and Danny Pate. They are joined by veteran strong men Jesse Anthony and Tom Soladay along with talented climbers Adam de Vos, Emerson Oronte and Sepp Kuss. Also returning is Rally Cycling's robust sprint train, including National Criterium Champion Brad Huff, Shane Kline, Pierrick Naud, Curtis White and Eric Young.

"Looking toward the future, pursuing the best young riders in North America is a major priority for Rally Cycling," said Jonas Carney, Performance Manager. "We already have an incredibly strong selection of young guys in McNulty, Joyce, Kuss and White. We plan to expand that group in the coming years. These riders, combined with the strength and experience of the veterans on the team make for a strong, diverse team that will be competitive in races throughout the season."
Long time team riders Tom Zirbel and Will Routley have both announced their retirement from the professional peloton. Both riders finished out their careers with great final seasons. Routley took an impressive victory in stage two of the GP Liberty Seguros in Portugal on his way to second overall and also finished third in the Canadian National Championships - despite being taken down in the final corner. Zirbel chose to ride off into the sunset by smashing the American Hour Record, setting a new distance of 53.037. Zirbel and Routleys' talents, dedication and humor will be missed by everyone at Rally Cycling.
