Fernando Gaviria will debut in UAE Team Emirates’s colours in the Vuelta a San Juan, January 27 to February 3 in Argentina.
“I’m returning to Argentina and San Juan with pleasure,” said the Colombian sprinter. “I have good memories: in 2017, I won two stages and in 2018, before pulling out due to a crash in the fourth stage, I was able to win a stage. This year, I hope to repeat the success from two years ago.
It will also be my debut with UAE Team Emirates and I can’t hide that I’d like to start on the right foot with the idea that this is going to be a great season for me and the team“.
Seven stages with a day of rest are on the menu in Argentina: four stages should suit the sprinters, one time trial of 12 km, a stage for the all-arounders, and one for the climbers. UAE Team Emirates brings a roster ready to support Gaviria’s speed, but also with the desire to take part in the overall with Valerio Conti.
Riders: Tom Bohli (Sui), Simone Consonni (Ita), Valerio Conti (Ita), Roberto Ferrari (Ita), Fernando Gaviria (Col), Oliviero Troia (Ita).
Sports Director: Simone Pedrazzini (Sui).
