Fernando Gaviria: “I’m leaving happy, but I think we acted badly”

Fernando Gaviria was very close to winning the sixth stage of the Giro d’Italia. The Movistar Team cyclist led the pack in the last few metres, but it was not enough for him to win and ended up occupying fifth place. The Danish Mads Pedersen from Trek – Segafredo was the winner after beating the Colombian by more than one wheel.

the antioqueno spoke with the official media of the Spanish team and He was self-critical after failing to make the podium because even though he had legs they made bad decisions when finishing the race so he couldn’t win. However, he highlighted the good stage experienced by all the riders in the peloton.

“We came to this, to give everything every day in the sprint. We wanted to win, we suffered a lot on the climbs, but we crowned close and entered. In the end, things didn’t work out for us. I’m leaving happy, because the stage was beautiful and we gave everything we had, we didn’t leave anything on our legs; but at the same time, I think we acted badly. I should have started faster, with more strength, more speed, and that way I would have been able to win,” Gaviria said.

“Although I fell off the hook, I think it was better for us that the stage was fast, because the sprinters arrived more ‘measured’. C.With the break ahead until the end, I think it was a nice race for everyone, both for the peloton and for those who saw us on television. Forces to win? They had, because I already spent them all today, I was dead, ”she added.
