Cycling: Nairo Quintana promises to participate in the Tour de France 2020



Bogota (AFP)

Colombian Nairo Quintana, three times on the podium of the Tour de France, assured Wednesday that he will participate in the 2020 edition within his new team, Arkea-Samsic.

"I want to tell you quietly that we are going to do the Tour de France," said the 29-year-old cyclist in Bogota during a press conference.

At the end of August at the beginning of September, Quintana left the Movistar team to join Arkea-Samsic from 2020, which raised doubts about his participation in the "Great Loop", where he finished 2nd in 2013 and 2015, and 3rd in 2016.

Arkea-Samsic is part of the continental professional category, one step below the elite, and needs invitations to participate in the biggest competitions.

Quintana must be the "co-leader" of Arkea-Samsic from 2020 with Warren Barguil, the reigning French champion.

In his career, he won the Giro 2014 and the Vuelta 2016, and more recently the stage-marathon Tour de France between Gap and Valloire, this summer alone.
