Quick-Step Floors’ Fernando Gaviria takes stage three at the Colombia Oro y Paz race.

Giviria Colombia cycling

Quick-Step Floors’ Fernando Gaviria has just won third stage in Buga sprinting to the finish line in 3 hours, 30 minutes and 5 seconds.

 

This is the rider’s third consecutive victory and he is now leading the general classification of the race.

 

“Fernando has always had, let’s say, a winning mentality, and every time he had a problem and wasn’t able to win it bothered him a lot. That meant he had a very temperamental character. He was a bit detached, and he wasn’t very open,” Éder Garcés from the Colombian Cycling Federation has claimed about Gaviria.

 

“The 2014 Tour de l’Avenir was when he really started to become a star, and then in 2015 he won his first Omnium world title. When he beat Cavendish twice at the 2015 Tour de San Luis, we started to see a different Fernando. He had more of a network around him, people invested more in him, and he realized he needed to open up for this new phase of his life, which is being one of the stars of world cycling,” he added.

 

Today’s third 163.2km stage went over a flat route allowing the sprinters to give their best when fighting to cross the finish line sooner than the others. Since at the beginning of the stage, there were five riders who were able to immediately escape from the main group.
