The rider from UAE Team Emirates conquers his third stage victory.
UAE Team Emirates finished off a solid week at the Vuelta San Juan with victory for Fernando Gaviria on stage 7. The 25 year old jumped from the wheel of Alvaro Hodeg in the closing metres and held off Peter Sagan to win comfortably on the finish in San Juan. On a day made for the sprinters, it was UAE Team Emirates who controlled the front of the bunch for much of the race before neutralising the last member of the early breakaway with 9km to go. From here the sprint trains gathered at the front of the pack with Max Richeze rounding together the troops to lead out Gaviria with yesterday’s second place rider, Sebastian Molano opening up the sprint which Gaviria finished off in style. The win marks the third of the week for the team and will be encouraging for the squad heading into the upcoming races.
