UAE Team Emirtaes' Fernando Gaviria emerges victorious on second stage of Vuelta Burgos.

The win came to Gaviria, who dominated the final sprint on the 2nd stage of the Vuelta a Burgos, 168km from Castrojeriz to Villadiego with Arnaud Demare (Groupama-FDJ) and Sam Bennett (Deceunick-Quick Step) rounding out the podium.
 
The team had to stay versatile on the stage, having to deal with the reduced number of riders. This didn't hamper Gaviria, and the Colombian finished off the day with a clear victory.
 
Gaviria said: "The compactness of the team was exceptional, we had to do without three riders, therefore not being able to work to keep the escape at bay, but we counted in the final on our good legs and a little luck to finish off a good sprint. I thank my teammates, who looked after me the whole stage and delivered me for the win."
 
The third stage will be one for the climbers and departs from Sargentes de Lora and finishes at Picón Blanco (150km).
