Gaviria sprints to stage 2 victory at the Vuelta a San Juan

The Colombian was way back as the peloton entered the final kilometre, but he took advantage of the wide road to move up as the finish banner reared into view.

“I can’t deny I’m in good form,” Gaviria said after taking a seat in the press room near the finish line. “Since the training camp in December, I’ve been doing some specific work and watching my diet. I’m in good condition and I hope to continue like that on the way to the Classics.”
