Q&A: Robin Carpenter On Coming Oh So Close to a European Win

Breakaway specialist Robin Carpenter has come oh so close to winning a big event in Europe. Carpenter heads back this year with Rally Cycling to try and capture that elusive first European victory. We caught up with Carpenter to talk about the team's ambitions in 2020.

American breakaway specialist Robin Carpenter has come oh so close to winning his first European race over the past several years. In 2018 his closest call came at stage 5 of the Arctic Race of Norway; last season Carpenter scored two second-place finishes at hard one-day races in France after riding for much of the day in breakaways. Carpenter is headed back to Europe in 2020 with Rally Cycling, and the team is likely to give him more opportunities to race to win. VeloNews recently caught up with Carpenter to talk about his close calls, as well as his big ambitions in 2020.
