After over a year without a competitive outing, the Aevolo team finally had their first taste of racing in 2021 with the International Tour of Rhodes in Greece. The American squad had not been on a start line since the 2020 Sun Tour and after a year destroyed by the pandemic, the team's management arranged for them to venture to Europe and take part in the three-day stage race, as well as an international one-day event.

The now-U24 team finished with two riders inside the top 30 but despite the modest results, they are hoping to use the experience to kick-start their season with a training camp on the horizon, as well as a stacked calendar that will see them split their efforts between the US and Europe.
