Volta a Catalunya Quintana

Volta a Catalunya QuintanaNAIRO Quintana has won the Volta a Catalunya after a gruelling final stage on Barcelona’s Montjuic.

The Colombian ace fended off attacks from Spanish riders Alberto Contador and Joaquim Rodriguez during eight circuits of the punchy 6km route to seal overall victory.

Last year’s Vuelta a Espana winner Fabio Aru attempted to seize control of the race from the Movistar rider, but his 30-second breakaway was pulled back in, as was an attack by Chris Froome.

Katusha’s Alexey Tsatevich took the stage win with Quintana’s final margin of victory seven seconds.

  1. Definately Jack and I can’t wait to see it happen but he must make sure that his team is’nt full of Spaniards, out of spite they will fail him. I have seen the way that the Spanish treat indigenous people from Central and South America – the conquistadore mentality is alive and well.
