Carpenter Looking for more Breakaway Opportunities in Columbia

Carpenter Looking for more Breakaway Opportunities in Columbia

Rally Cycling's escape artist was on the move at Vuelta a San Juan and hopes to continue at Columbia 2.1.

By now the image of American Robin Carpenter and his orange Rally Cycling jersey pushing along at the front of a race is a common sight, with the 27-year-old and his fellow escapees attempting to achieve the relatively rare feat of making a breakaway stick all the way to the finish. 

Since joining the team in 2018 from Holowesko-Citadel, Carpenter has been Rally's go-to rider for making the long play in stages and one-day races, including making the break at Fleche Wallonne last year and riding it close to the finish before Deceuninck-QuickStep and Julian Alaphilippe claimed another win. 

For Carpenter, being out front is just a natural instinct.
