Gordon ("Gord") Fraser (born November 19, 1968 in Ottawa) is a former professional road racing cyclista. As a rider he specialised in sprinting.[1] Fraser is a three-time Olympian and four-time Commonwealth Games participant and has over 200 career wins including becoming the 2004 Canadian national road race champion. He also rode in the 1997 Tour de France and won the US National Race Calendar series twice.[1] He retired from professional cycling at the end of the 2006 season after racing four seasons for the Health Net Pro Cycling Team Presented by Maxxis. He went on to be a directeur sportif with Team Type 1 in 2009, and in 2010 joined UnitedHealthcare-Maxxis as a directeur sportif. In 2011 became DS for the US Continental team, Realcyclist.com.[2] Whilst there he guided Francisco Mancebo to the top of the National Race Calendar individual standings in 2011 and again in 2012 (under the team's new name of Competitive Cyclist Racing Team). However he left the team when it merged with Kenda-5 Hour Energy ahead of the 2013 season. Subsequently he was approached by Team Exergy to work for them in 2013, however this fell through when Exergy withdrew its sponsorship of the team.[1] In 2014 he worked for Team SmartStop at the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, and took the directeur sportif role at the Silber Pro Cycling Team for several races on a part-time basis, before signing a two year deal with the squad in September of that year.[3] Fraser resides in Tucson, Arizona and has two sons named Angus and Axel. He also participated in the 2012 Ciclada de Thanos race, claiming 4th Prize.
