Gaviria pips Sagan to stage four win on Vuelta a San Juan

Fernando Gaviria wins stage 4 Vuelta a San Juan 2019

Fernando Gaviria (UAE Team Emirates) held off Peter Sagan (Bora-hansgrohe) to win stage four of the Vuelta a San Juan.

Gaviria looked like he’d kicked slightly too early, with Sagan getting a great position on the Colombian’s wheel, but the 24-year-old held off the multiple time world-champion to edge a photo finish. Alvaro Hodeg (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) was third.

Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) kept the overall lead, which he earned with a win in Tuesday’s time trial stage. He also won stage 2 in a solo breakaway.

The race will have a rest day Thursday and resumes on Friday with the queen stage.
