Esteban Chaves: The Australian Colombian

April 23, 2024

In episode 103, I chat with the smiling Colombian Esteban Chaves. Esteban shot to fame in 2014 as a likeable and endearing character while riding for Greenedge Cycling. He has podiumed the Giro d’italia and the Vuelta Espana, winning numerous grand tour stages and a monument at Il Lombardia. In this episode, Esteban and I discuss the traditional desserts of Colombia and learn more about the food culture of his country. Esteban details what it is like at his current team, EF-Education First – Easy Post, and how it compares to the previous Australian outfit. Finally, we chat about Esteban’s favourite races, tattoos, and the freezing week at the Tour of the Alps.
