After eight years as one of the most formidable teams in the US, the Hincapie Racing team will come to an end after the coronavirus pandemic kept the team from competing in a single race in 2020. According to Rich Hincapie, who with his brother George has supported the team with their clothing company, the programme will continue as a small junior team in the hopes it can grow back in a year or two when the world's situation has stabilised.

"We started as a BMC feeder team and just kept it going all these years and had some good successes," Rich Hincapie told Cyclingnews. "I'm proud of what we've built and I think we can we can build on that again. It's just as a business owner and someone passionate about the sport and obviously still in the sport, it's about resources and focus on what makes the most sense."
