One of the best Colombian exponents of the track modality in history, Fernando Gaviria, has decided to resume activity at the Medellín velodrome with the aim of reaching Paris 2024.
The two-time omnium world champion and fourth at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, with the authorization of his new team Movistar and the Colombian Cycling Federation, will resume the omnium and Madison with his sights set on the Olympic games to be held in France next year, according to information from journalist Diego Sandoval of Teleantioquia.
The Antioquia cyclist, who is getting ready for the 2023 season, begins a new stage in his sports career with the Spanish WorldTour team led by Eusebio Unzué, where he also has great ambitions for this new year.
Gaviria was seen training in the capital of the mountains at the velodrome, in order to find his best form to beat the fastest riders in the peloton in the sprint in the International Tour of San Juan, which will be his first test in this new campaign.
Gaviria still does not have a defined calendar with Movistar, but he would be present at the National Route in February (Bucaramanga) and the Giro d’Italia (May) would be his great objective.
Gaviria’s track record is quite extensive and that is why he has made this decision. He was junior world champion in omnium and madison and then seniors in omnium; he also has gold medals in South Americans, Central Americans, Track World Cup and in national competitions.
