Something a few people know is that Edwin Avila loves puzzles, and his 2014 season was somewhat similar to one of his favorite leisure activities. February and the track brought him another Points Race World title, and this time in his native city of Calì, in front of his home fans, enjoying one of the biggest emotions of  his whole life. On the other hand, his year on the road was not as satisfying as the previous season was: after withdrawing from the Giro d’Italia due to illness, Edwin could never quite show the best of himself. Avila is now sure to have solved the riddle, and “El Kalimeno” looks to get back where he belongs: in the thick of the action in mass sprints, while making the best of his stronger climbing skills compared to most fellow sprinters.
