Colombian kicks out early for comfortable victory
United Arab Emirates,  September 17, 2020:  Fernando Gaviria took his 6th win of the season, coming home first to win the bunch sprint at the Giro della Toscana in Italy.
Gaviria opened up his sprint with more than 400m to go after the 182.9km day starting and finishing in Pontedera.
The win marks his 46th career victory and the 25th win of the year for UAE Team Emirates.
Gaviria: “Whenever I pin a number on my bike I want to try and win. I made a couple of mistakes in Tirreno but I’ve recovered well since then and today we did a good job as a team. I was sitting a bit further down the group trying to stay out of stress and I saw an opportunity to go early in the sprint and I managed to get a big gap and luckily no-one came past me.”
