Aqua Blue Sport (ABS) - Wildcard
The US team, managed by Circuit Sports, was founded in 2007 and achieved pro continental status last season. The team is sponsored by UnitedHealth Group, the world’s largest provider in the healthcare sector.
Last season, Colin Joyce drew attention to himself and to Rally UHC Cycling with a stage win and third place in the general classification at the Arctic Race of Norway. With Brandon McNulty, the 2016 junior time trial world champion, Rally UHC has one of the major emerging American talents in its team.
In 2019, the ambitious Americans will also count Svein Tuft (previously Mitchelton-Scott), an experienced road captain, among their number. The Canadian has previously worn the maglia rosa at the Giro d’Italia in 2014 and competed in the Tour de Suisse in 2015.
