The entire sporting world ground to a sudden halt in the springtime, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. And this was certainly the case for professional bike racing. The men and women of Rally Cycling have still been putting in their training miles and staying fit for whenever competition resumes, and they've been doing so aboard their custom race bikes, including the DA time trial bike, the FR road bike, and the all-new AR aero road bike. The team was able to compete in a handful of early-season races before the global shutdown, and the riders have been showcasing their unique machines on their social media channels.
Still, we wanted to shine on a spotlight on the stunning equipment designed for the sport's top athletes. Check out the gallery below of Rally Cycling's custom AR aero road bikes, which includes photos from the team's pre-season training camps and early-season races, all of which took place before the global COVID-19 pandemic reared its ugly head.
