Before we chat with the team riders, though, we felt the need to introduce the man behind the RealCyclist.com Prol Cycling Team, Directeur Sportif Gord Fraser.
Gord’s presence is bigger than life. Polished in his words, he exudes charisma. His firm handshake and friendly smile are genuinely Canadian. He’s the type of guy you have one beer with, and feel like you’ve known for a lifetime. That said, Gord’s pleasant demeanor is tempered with a firm desire to win. His stories are nothing short of captivating, perhaps because every tiny detail seems to contain some piece of authenticity and allure—and they more often than not end in a laugh. To say Gord is simply well-respected by the cycling community would be a gross understatement. The man is truly a class act.
As North America’s winningest professional cyclist, Gord is no stranger to the top step of the podium. This may explain why, under Gord’s leadership, the RealCyclist.com Pro Cycling Team has firmly planted themselves atop the NRC standings with nothing but fresh legs, cold bottles and open road ahead. We caught up with Gord at the 25th Annual Tour of the Gila for a quick Q & A session—then hit up some of the best Mexican food in Silver City, New Mexico.
