Fernando Gaviria sprinted to glory on the final stage of the Tour de Romandie, launching a long sprint to the line to take his second win in Movistar colours in Geneva.
The Colombian beat out Nikias Arndt (Bahrain Victorious) and Ethan Hayter (Ineos Grenadiers) to the line, leading from the front after starting his sprint a massive 300 metres from the finish.
Gaviria led the way around the final bend, surging clear to take two bike lengths on Milan Menten (Lotto-Dstny). As he eased to the win ahead of the rest, Arndt passed Menten on the right with Hayter jumping on the left.
The pair passed the Belgian fastman, but couldn’t get close to Gaviria, who had time to sit up and celebrate as he crossed the line.
Away from the drama of the dash for the line, Adam Yates (UAE Team Emirates) finished safely in the peloton back in 25th place to confirm his overall victory.
The Briton, whose victory was built with a solo triumph atop Thyon 2000 on Saturday, finished the week 19 seconds clear of Matteo Jorgenson (Movistar), while Damiano Caruso (Bahrain Victorious) rounded out the podium at 27 seconds.
