Riders and staff for Rally UHC Cycling gathered in Minnesota this week for their first get together of the team's 2020 rosters, culminating with two team presentations on Friday.

The team's major sponsors are headquartered in Minneapolis, and the program run by Circuit Sports presented the team to the United Health Group in the afternoon at the Optum headquarters building in Eden Prairie, and then again in the evening at the Rally HQ in downtown Minneapolis.

The men's Pro Continental team and women's UCI team also showed off their 2020 kits by new clothing sponsor Pactimo. The team retains their orange theme in a kit that looks similar to the 2019 outfits, but next year's look includes an orange fade on the torso and sleeves.

Rob Britton, Nate Brown, Chloe Hosking and Megan Jastrab took the stage at the Optum event for United Health Group employees and described their reasons to ride a bike, eliciting stories from people in the crowd about their personal reasons to ride. A drawing at the end of the event gave away Pactimo clothing, a Lazer helmet, sunglasses and a new Felt bicycle to one lucky winner.
