New Zealand's Glen Chadwick may be a long way from home racing with his Navigators Insurance Professional Continental team, but that's not stopping him from stamping his mark on the North American racing scene. Cyclingnews' North American Editor Mark Zalewski spoke with the 30 year-old after his stage win in Vallée-Jonction, Québec.
It would not be surprising to think that Navigators Insurance's Glen Chadwick lost a bet or ran over director sportif Ed Beamon's dog at some point - at least by the way he races his bike. Seemingly every stage race Chadwick is entered in results in the Kiwi (with a hint of Aussie) setting out in every other breakaway, and often ending up solo on the front. Most of the time the gamble does not pan out, but not for a lack of trying and usually with the finish line in sight. However, today in Vallée-Jonction Chadwick cashed in those times where the line was too far away with a well-earned solo win from a long breakaway.
"Luck is starting to go my way maybe?" Chadwick said in response today's win, as well as another recent solo win in Mt. Hood. "I did a lot of work for Phil that day to get that break back. I eventually got across to it but it came back together. Then I just found the right moment when everyone is gasping for air. That is the time to go."
