Cycling: Quintana will appear at the Giro

Colombian cyclist Nairo Quintana, 34, convalescing after a fall in March, announced on Wednesday his participation in the next Giro, in Italy, from May 4 to 26. Uncertain for this meeting after a fall during the last stage of the Tour of Catalonia, Quintana plans to participate in the Giro “like one cyclist among others, suffering like crazy (...) but it is important to be there,” he told the Ciclismo a Fondo website.

Quintana says he is recovering in Colombia from a “tear in the sternum and a displacement of the collarbone”. “I will stay in Colombia until the last moment and I will go directly to the Giro,” added the rider who returned to competition in February after being suspended for a positive doping test.

Disqualified from the 2022 Tour de France, in which he finished sixth, for two positive tests for tramadol, a powerful painkiller banned by the medical regulations of the International Cycling Union (UCI), Quintana had spent a blank year, without a team. The Spanish team Movistar, under whose colors he won the Giro in 2014, re-hired him in October.
