Another announcement of the Rally Cycling has been the Chad Haga’s return to his first professional team eight years after, from the german team DSM where he has raced for five seasons.

I’ve spent eight years as a support rider in the DSM organization, but I want to enjoy racing as much as I did at the beginning of my career,” Haga explains. “I think this is a great way to kick that off because I’ve watched Rally Cycling race really aggressively for the last few seasons with a lot of success and I’m eager to be a part of that.”
