Remco Evenepoel claimed the overall win at the Vuelta a San Juan as Fernando Gaviria took his third stage victory in the current edition of the competition.

Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates) launched a strong final sprint that nobody could match. Peter Sagan (Bora-hansgrohe) and Alvaro Hodeg (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) crossed the finish line just after the Colombian.

“It’s really good to start the season with three stage wins in my first race,” said Gaviria. “I’m really motivated for the rest of the season and I hope I can bring these performances to the next races.”

Evenepoel enjoyed a calm day in the white jersey after he laid the foundations for final overall victory with an emphatic triumph in the stage 3 time trial to Punta Negra.

“First and foremost, I want to thank the entire team, it was a great week and with their help I could have this perfect start to the season, which serves as a big confidence boost. I am proud to win this race and be the youngest rider to sew up the general classification at the Vuelta a San Juan. It’s an amazing place, with superb fans, and it’s always a pleasure to be here, that’s why I hope to return in the future”, Evenepoel said.
