Been following him for a while and recent results are a good reason to start a thread about him. We're only two months into this season, but Higuita has been one of the revelations without a doubt. He was supposed to ride with EF Education this season, but some sort of loan construction sees him with Euskadi for at least the first seven months of this year. According to Higuita himself, he was the one who suggested this, and it's save to say the move has paid off.
His progression didn't come out of the blue, as he has been making strides for a while. As an 18 year old, he finished 12th in the highly rated Valle d'Aosta while working for his leaders Hernan Aguirre and Aldemar Reyes. Not too bad. However, especially the latter part of last season is where he saw a rise in his results. Finishing 5th in the Vuelta a Colombia (not exactly a race for kids), and winning a stage in the process, as can be seen in the picture above. This season has been a continuation of his progression, and now he's showing it in Europe as well.
