Travis McCabe (Israel Start-Up Nation) continued to climb nearer to a podium result Saturday during stage 5 at the Tour Colombia 2.1, where he finished fourth in a chaotic sprint in front of a massive and boisterous crowd in Tour de France champion Egan Bernal's hometown of Zipaquirá.

The two-time and reigning American criterium champion survived through the highly technical final two kilometres and was well-positioned for the sprint on the wheel of stage winner Sebastian Molano (UAE Team Emirates) before getting bumped off in the chaos and finishing behind Molano, Alvaro Hodeg (Deceuninck-QuickStep) and Jhonatan Restrepo (Androni Giocattoli-Sidermec).
