dayer quintana wins tour de san Luis

The Quintana brothers and Movistar Team showed that they will once again be the team to beat in 2016 by dominating the Tour de San Luis. In an unexpected result Dayer, Nairo’s younger brother, took the overall title in the seven day stage race. He was not the only member of his family on the podium as Nairo finished just 35 seconds back in third place. After his win Dayer reflected on riding in the shadow of his brother: “Being the brother of Nairo isn’t a burden but [rather] it gives me a goal and maybe I can be like him and achieve what he has done.”

It was the first stage-race victory for the 23 year-old and an excellent showing for Movistar Team. The Colombian brothers showed their strength as climbers through the mountain stages in central Argentina. Both brothers rode the Ultimate CF SLX to podium positions and look poised and ready for a big season.
