Esteban announced his arrival on the international cycling scene after breakthrough seasons in 2015 and 2016, positioning himself as a genuine general classification contender. 

Chaves finished fifth overall at the Vuelta a Espana and won the inaugural Abu Dhabi Tour in 2015, before finishing 2nd overall at the Giro d'Italia and 3rd overall at the Vuelta a Espana in 2016. Capping off an incredible year, Chaves won Il Lombardia to become the first Colombian to win one of cycling's five monuments.

The smiling Colombian had a tough season in 2017 after a knee injury effected his start to the year, but determined as ever, Chaves bounced back with strong performances at the Vuelta a Espana.
