Colombia drama today : So close..

THE HUNGRY ( and Angry 😠 ) Edwin Avila .

Nobody wants to win here more then our Edwin Ávila. Nobody.

Well , he is a Colombian and this is his home turf. But it’s more then that. “I want to show Colombia who is Israel Cycling Academy and a victory here would be a dream scenario”.

So maybe you would understand why Edwin was so upset when we met him in the team Van right after the sprint finish at Rionegro where he finished 6th.

“I don’t mind to lose when you done all. But here I had two fellow Colombian Climbers that closed my path 500 meters to the finish when I was right on Juan Molano’s ( the eventual winner) . They are both climbers who stood no chance to win anyway so what was the point? I believe I lost a chance to win it for nothing really”.

You can’t blame him. The Team worked hard today for a few optional plans. The idea was to try to survive the climb selections with our sprinters so the number 1 mission was to protect our leasing sprinter Mihkel Räim who finished 4th in the second stage. But the super hard pace in the first circuit ( no breakaway formed) cost us tons of energy and one rider: Israeli Roy Goldstein. Roy suffered from stomach problems and lack of sleep but faved the music bravely. When could not hold the pace in the 2000 m plus altitude he refused to give up and continued alone the whole 161 km , trying to make the cut and fight another day.

And guess what? Roy made it.

Still, Raim was hanging on till the last climb of the day when so many sprinters around him dropped. But in the middle of that climb he could not hold the pace any longer.

So then it was Avila’s turn to shine and he almost delivered ...

A few hours after the race he tempered down . “ Still upset but I will look for the next chance”.

Yalla. After 4th and 6th, we will try again tomorrow.
