Fernando Gaviria is set to lead UAE Team Emirates in the Vuelta a San Juan. The Colombian has won five stages in the Argentinean race.

Gaviria will start his season once more in South America, where he will be rejoined by his lead-out main man Max Richeze. The rider has taken five stage victories since the first time he started there in 2017 and last season ge won two bunch sprints.

The race is part of the ProSeries and will be held between the 22nd of January and the second of March. The Argentinian competition will also feature a 15.5-kilometre time trial in which riders like Tom Bohli and Brandon McNulty can show a good performance.

"I'm excited to be coming back to race in Argentina," said Gaviria. "Last year we started the season well here with victory on stage 1. The level of sprinters is always very high so it acts as a good test in the early part of the season. We are coming to the race well-prepared.

"It's true, this year I will have an extra motivation because Maximiliano Richeze will be by my side. He is a very important person in my career and in UAE Team Emirates we are happy to have him with us. With him in the team, we will have even more encouragement from the fans too, because for them Richeze is an example for the locals."
