The UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team, a US-based Pro Continental squad, has been in action in Europe this spring, most recently at Italy's Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali stage race, encompassing six stages in five days from March 20 to 24.

Photographer Jonathan Devich has been travelling with the team and has provided this behind the scenes look at UnitedHealthcare's Italian campaign.

Highlights for the team include a pair of top ten finishers in the opening stage (Alessandro Bazzana for third, Kiel Reijnen for seventh), Lucas Euser's solo attack in the uphill finale of stage 3 plus Philip Deignan's 11th place general classification result, 3:27 behind overall winner Diego Ulissi (Lampre-Merida).
