October 19, 2016 – Rally Cycling is proud to announce the addition of Canadian Matteo Dal-Cin for the 2017 season. One of the strongest riders in North America, Dal-Cin had a breakout 2016 season with overall victory at the Redlands Bicycle Classic and several top finishes at the Tour of the Gila and GP de Saguenay. Known for his strength and finishing speed, Rally Cycling looks for Dal-Cin to be a major factor in races throughout the season.
2016 Redlands Bicycle Classic Champion Adds Strength and Speed to 2017 Team
Dal-Cin has been in the saddle since he was young, thanks to his parents who are both avid cyclists. Dal-Cin started racing as junior, but split his time between the bike, hockey and soccer. It wasn’t until he reached U-23 racing that he focused solely on cycling. The result of his dedication was an end to a construction job and a move to the professional ranks with the Canadian based Silber team.
A strong all-around rider, Dal-Cin will give Rally Cycling more options during some of the toughest races in North America. From field sprints to general classification, Dal-Cin has shown that he is a factor regardless of race type, conditions or terrain. For the 2017 season he will look to build on his tremendous 2016 results and sets his sights on Europe and the high ranked events on the UCI America Tour.
While the 2017 race schedule has not been finalized, the team looks forward to Dal-Cin’s contributions to the team on and off the bike.
