Fernando Gaviria

Fernando Gaviria continued his dream Colombia Oro y Paz race with a third win after dominating the bunch sprint at the conclusion of stage 3 in Buga. 

Once again benefiting from a textbook lead-out by his Quick-Step Floors team-mate Max Richeze, Gaviria powered clear to win the stage from Palmira ahead of IMatteo Malucelli (Androni-Sidermec-Bottecchia) and Juan Sebastian Molano (Manzana Postobon).

“I worked hard during the winter and had a very good preparation, that’s the reason why I’m here today, enjoying all these wins. In San Juan I suffered a setback, but fortunately it wasn’t too serious and I could return here, in front of my family and these unbelievable fans, to whom I want to say a big thank you! Colombia proved that it can organise an international race and I’m proud to have been here for this first edition”, an emotional and happy Fernando Gaviria said after the stage.
