Earlier this season, Leibovitz won the prologue at the Ster van Zuid Limburg, a stage race in Belgium where he finished third overall.
"The signing of Adam Leibovitz confirms RGF Sports' commitment to provide America's top young cyclist the resources needed to reach the highest level of the sport in the United States," said Team Owner Robert "Polo" Fernandez. "Adam is a polite young man...a real gentleman; it is amazing he's only 19."
