Joey Rosskopf, a 32-year-old rider with Rally Cycling, was twice the U.S. national time trial champion in 2017 and 2018 when riding for BMC Racing. This summer, though, he and his Rally teammates took turns counterattacking at the business end of the U.S. road championships, and he was able to put his TT skills to use, soloing to the win ahead of Brent Bookwalter (BikeExchange) and his Rally teammate Kyle Murphy.
To celebrate, Rally had his Felt AR painted by Brad Galvin at Dirt Designs Graphic.

The head tube’s leading edge is slender, and the tube itself is hourglass-shaped.
The UCI sticker isn’t unique, but the paint job sure is.
Vision provided custom stickers to match Galvin’s paint job, which features nice details inside the fork legs.
AR is Felt’s aero bike.
Felt currently doesn’t sell the AR with Force (and certainly doesn’t sell it with the national-champion paint!), but a bike with SRAM Red eTap AXS is $14,999.
The Vision Metron Aero bars complement the frame’s aero-and-tidy design, with a slender front profile and integrated computer mount.
The Felt AR has a steep, 74-degree head tube angle.
Vision’s 55mm Metron, with the flag stuck on and the tire glued on.

And Pactimo made him a full complement of stars-and-stripes clothing, of course.
