Fernando Gaviria Discussion Thread

09 Sep 2015 14:57

Don't know if it's poor form to open up a thread about a stagiaire, but after vanquishing Cav twice and now the Gorilla I think the man has earned it.

Now we have to come up with a nickname better than Gav.

Let's be fair, for any youngster who does well.
Remember when Kwiatkowski exploded and we suddenly had a billion zillion trillion people who couldn't write his name or know what his strengths and weaknesses were yet assured everyone they were lifelong fans?

Anyway, Gaviria. Definitely an possible top sprinter in the making.
Also nice to see Cavendish not being a tool and celebrating his teammate's win. Did he do the leadout as well?

Now Lefevre really dont need cav in his team. Although i think he would fit there, cav would probably accept to lead him out.

I sure do. It even got me to dislike Kwiat, as irrational as that may sound.

But yes. props to Gaviria.

Gaviria was third last man in the train, but it was messy so he decided to sprint for himself.

I'm getting flack elsewhere for my nicknames being too derivative. Does the Colombian Cannon ring too close to the Manx Missile?

Also I don't get why "Gaviria" gets mangled so often. 7 letters, only one of which (V) has a scrabble score above 2, no near-homonyms to confuse people. Why?

His nickname is Speedy, from Speedy Gonzales.

Hi I've always liked Gaviria :D (Etixx's fan)

Here is an issue. Gaviria is heading to Olympics next year for sure. I wonder if Lefevere will allow him to prepare for it, instead of riding TdF if Cav not in the team. They could have the whole Cav problem all over again...

Lefevere respects Gaviria's desire to participate in the 2016 Olympics. Therefore, he'll race a different program next year, which allows him to be in the best shape in Rio. This agreement was already made when Gaviria signed in January.

I wish that there was a forum like this in 1999. Poor Casper did not get the hype he deserved.

By the end of 2017 Gaviria will have more wins than Haedo in his entire career. He is now at 4 and Haedo has 22 in total. Should be doable for him. :D
