May 16, 2018 - TORRANCE, CA.
  • 2019 RDX compact luxury SUV is official support vehicle of Rally Cycling during the Amgen Tour of California and throughout 2018 racing season
  • Acura enters 7th year of partnership with Rally Cycling as its Official Vehicle
  • Racing fans get a sneak peek at completely redesigned and re-engineered, all-new 2019 RDX before arriving in dealerships mid-year

The all-new 2019 Acura RDX will make its public debut as the official team vehicle and lead support vehicle of Rally Cycling, America's 2017 top-ranked continental men's and women's cycling program, throughout the 2018 season, starting with the Amgen Tour of California (May 13-19). Now in its 7th year as a Rally Cycling sponsor, Acura also will be providing a 2018 NSX supercar as a second support vehicle to accompany the racers through each leg of the Amgen Tour of California. Both the RDX and NSX are skinned in the Rally Cycling team colors (orange and black) and logo as they accompany Rally Cycling during the Amgen Tour of California, and as the RDX continues on tour throughout the 2018 racing season.

"We're excited to continue our longstanding partnership with Rally Cycling and showcase the all-new RDX on public roads," said Jon Ikeda, vice president & general manager of Acura. "The 2019 RDX is the quickest, best-handling yet, making it the perfect vehicle to support the Rally Cycling team throughout the rigorous race season."

As the first in a new generation of Acura products, the re-engineered 2019 RDX delivers top-of-class performance, a more spacious and luxurious cabin, and a host of premium technology and features. Designed, developed and manufactured in America1, the new turbocharged RDX will begin arriving at Acura dealers this summer as the quickest, best handling and most luxurious RDX yet.

The 2018 Rally Cycling men's team consists of 16 riders, and is directed by Jonas Carney, Patrick McCarty, Eric Wohlberg, and Andy Bajadali. The team was founded in 2007, and spent 11 seasons in the Continental ranks. In 2018, the team upgraded to Pro Continental and has a long-term plan for growth. In its early years, the team dominated the criterium circuit, becoming the first freshman team to win the U.S criterium title. The team has grown into a full fledged, intercontinental stage racing team that can claim podiums at the world's biggest races.

The 2018 Rally Cycling women's team consists of thirteen riders and is directed by former Olympian Zach Bell. The team has placed athletes on the biggest podiums in the world, including the Ronde Van Vlaanderen (2012) La Course (2014) and Gent Wevelgem (2015). The team has consistently won Canadian and US road race, time trial, and criterium championships. Since 2012, the women have won 16 national titles in North America. In 2018, the young roster has already delivered results at the top stage races in North America, including wins at the Joe Martin Stage Race and the Tour of the Gila.
