Gaviria doubles up in Argentina

UAE Team Emirates (Argentina) - The Colombian wins the fourth stage of the Vuelta a San Juan, 4th place for Consonni.

The second bunch sprint in the Vuelta a San Juan and another victory for Fernando Gaviria. Just like in the opening stage, the Colombian sprinter of UAE Team Emirates topped the sprint, this time in a duel with three-time world champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), second today (Bettini Photo).

Simone Consonni’s help at the end of the fourth stage – San Josè de Jachal-Villa San Augustin, 185.8 km – was priceless for Gaviria. The young Italian finished off the worked of UAE Team Emirates, launching the Colombian captain towards the win and held on for fourth place.

Gaviria remains second overall in the general classification, now at eight seconds from Alaphilippe. Valerio Conti sits third at 22″ and Consonni, seventh at 44″. UAE Team Emirates maintains control of the team classification thanks to their positions.

“It’s great to win a second time here, paying back the work of the team who fought those other teams and helped me for the sprint finish. Thanks to my team-mates for their support,” Gaviria said. “It was a high level sprint, against serious rivals like Sagan and Hodeg. The team was perfect in the approach of the last curve, then Consonni was very good at launching me.

It was a special stage, because here one year ago I went home in an ambulance.

I will try to enjoy the rest day and then we will see what happens on the stage to Alto Colorado. I’ll try to hold on, the general classification is difficult but I’ll try. Much will depend on my legs on the climb, but I’m only eight seconds from the leader so I’m going to push as much as possible“.
