Colin Joyce has become Rally Cycling’s man for all seasons. The talented all-rounder from Pocatello, Idaho, can mix it up with the WorldTour sprinters, set up his teammates for a result on the climbs for a general classification run, or target wins from a breakaway.

The 25-year-old, who counts stage wins at the 2016 Tour of Alberta and 2018 Arctic Race of Norway among his palmares, started his 2020 season at the Vuelta a San Juan in Argentina, where he finished eighth in the 15.5km individual time trial and 10th in a bunch sprint contested by Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), Alvaro Hodeg (Deceuninck-QuickStep) and UAE Team Emirates' Fernando Gaviria and Sebastian Molano.
