I'm hoping Gaviria can transform himself into a cobbles classics rider. That's probably too much to ask given that he grew up riding road and track races, but he seems to have the physical attributes necessary to be successful on the cobbles; also, he has the desire to actually do it.

I was hyping Manuel Sanroma that year. Sadly he never got to show how good he could have been.

Back in 1999 I was already hyping Frenado Gavrilia the kid was riding his tricycle like an absolute boss, the other kids had no chance in a race.

On the basis of his performances and Cavendish's declining results they are letting Cav go. Cav definitely would not have liked pulling for him. Team orders maybe

Fernando Gaviria (Etixx Quickstep) will not take today's start. He is our only non starter for stage5 of The Aviva Tour of Britain, wonder why? he was seen warming up.

Quoted from the Etixx team website:


Fernando Gaviria did not take to the start of the 5th stage in the Tour of Britain this morning.
Though the Colombian sprinter won the 4th stage yesterday, he is suffering from pre-patellar friction syndrome in his right knee, which needs a period of rest.
"This problem can come up either after a trauma like a fall, or from overuse, as in Fernando's case," explains Team Doctor Yvan Vanmol. "Fernando is a young rider who is measuring himself against certain distances, and with a professional pace for the first time. This is why, as a precautionary measure, we decided to not let him start and give him time to recuperate 100 percent. In the next few days we will evaluate if and when Fernando will be able to race from here to the end of the season, without any risk."

Like for any Colombian.


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?



Gave and I have been FB friends for the last 5 years and IG for the last 3. He told me he would be this good.

Seriously though, I don't think it's the same as with Kwia as he had been around for a few years before really breaking out. Almost everyone found out about Gaviria at the same time when he beat Cav twice at San Luis so in essence everyone who started liking him then truly will wind up being a fan from the beginning but there certainly won't be any cachet to it since he made such a public splash initially. It will be more like a Sagan situation.

It's a pity that this injury will most likely stop him from winning the U23WC RR, i'd argue he was the outstanding favourite for it.

Wiggins told Sky Sports this week that Cav will be elsewhere in 2016.

Shame about missing the U23 WC RR. I don't think the course fit his skills particularly well, but he could have been a contender.

Here we go. Colombians are not used to this kind of sprinters but this would be something new to cheer for.

Can't wait to see Gaviria and Ewan go head to head. ATM they look head and shoulders above any other young sprinters their age.

Not sure that Jakub Mareczko and his fans will agree with you on that :p
