Tristen Chernove is back on the podium after capturing a gold and silver medal at a Para-cycling Road World Cup event in Italy this past weekend.

Chernove’s silver was the first of seven medals for Team Canada on the opening day, as he peddled to second place during the individual time trial portion.

“It was a good ride for the most part,” said Chernove. “What I was trying to execute happened, although I did drop my chain with about 200 metres to go and that cost me a bit of time. I think I was in first when the chain came off and I had to push the bike, but that’s bike racing. I felt really good on the bike and it’s nice to be on the podium.”

Chernove struck gold the following day in the men’s C2 road race in a field sprint.

“It was a great race, it feels good to win,” said Chernove. “I’ve never had a World Cup leader’s jersey before and it felt good to put it on. I have to admit that racing at high speed through cobbles is a new experience for me and I had a couple of touchy moments, but it was a great race.”

Chernove’s results, as well as the results from fellow Canadian racers, earned high praise from national coach Sebastien Travers.

“I’m very pleased with the weekend overall,” said Sebastien Travers, national Para-cycling head coach. “In the road races we have identified a lot of things to work on for the next World Cups and the world championships. I am very satisfied with everyone’s performances and the spirit of the team.”
