What a season it’s been for the young Colombian! Not only that he scored at least a win in every stage race he lined out for (from January until October), but made of his Grand Tour debut a thing of absolute beauty, by winning four stages and the famed cyclamen jersey at the Giro d’Italia, in the process becoming the first ever South American to finish at the top of the points classification in a Grand Tour and only the second man in history to notch up four victories at a single edition of the Corsa Rosa before turning 23.
After establishing himself as one of the top sprinters in the peloton, Fernando is on the way of becoming an all-out superstar as he continues to search for his limits while preparing to make his debut in some of the most revered races of the calendar, of which he dreams since beginning cycling at the age of 15, under the guidance of his father.
