If there was a "Top 10 Moments of 2016" for Chad Young, the Tour of Alberta would definitely rank No. 1 on his list.
"We worked so well helping Colin Joyce to win the first stage," Young said. "I heard Axel (Merckx) screaming on the radio, three corners from the finish, while I was still on the finishing loop after being in the break all day. Colin had bridged up to us, then he won out of small group, just like we had talked about. It was perfect execution."
"I also had fun racing with Jonny Brown at the Tour of America's Dairyland. It was super relaxed and the two of us already knew each other from the Hot Tubes. So it was really like a post-Tour de France criterium-type series."
Young said he hopes to be racing many of the same races he did in 2016. "I will be more comfortable and aim to be top five or top 10. I want to work on making a difference in races this year."
