UAE Team Emirates had the perfect result on stage 2 of the Tour Colombia 2.1 thanks to the success of Sebastian Molano. The Colombian sprinter imposed himself in the sprint on the finish line of Duitama, after 152.4 km of racing (departure from Paipa), beating compatriot Alvaro Hodeg (Deceuninck-Quick Step) and Itamar Einhorn (Israel Start-Up Nation).
Molano said: “I arrived at this race in excellent condition both mentally and physically. Winning so close to my house and with my family here to see me race is priceless. As for the sprint, we knew that the biggest rival would be Hodeg, but Max led me flawlessly up to 200 meters from the finish and I was able to launch my sprint perfectly. I had the advantage of knowing all the roads really well as they are the one’s I use for training, and adding to this the great woork done by my teammates this is what helped seal the win
