“Exploring the world and seeing the beauty from the bike is important to this team. It’s important to me, too, to be happy on the bike.”

There’s a new Colombian in town. Meet Sergio. A mid-race transfer to EF Education First Pro Cycling, Sergio spent the first half of the year impressing on the roads of some of Europe’s lesser-known races and finishing ahead of some of the WorldTour’s biggest names. A natural climber, Sergio also packs a punch in the sprint.

 

Q&A with Sergio

Nickname?

The Higuita Monster

What would you be if you weren't a cyclist?

I like medicine. I think I would like to have been an emergency room doctor to help others when they have an emergency.

Travel must have?

I always bring a photo album that my girlfriend gave me five years ago from a race I had when I was 16-years-old. She made it in honor of that race, and it has very motivating phrases. I also bring a gift my mom gave me for my birthday, a cross of Jesus Christ, since we are Christian.
