Cycling: Rodrigo Contreras winner of the Tour of Colombia

Contreras (Nu Colombia), 29, resisted attacks from Carapaz and his compatriot Egan Bernal to claim victory in the general classification at the end of the 6th and final stage won by Jhonatan Restrepo, whose finish took place in Bogota, the Colombian capital.

His other compatriot, Rigoberto Uran, who announced on Sunday that he would retire at the end of the season, finished fourth ahead of Bernal, winner of the Tour de France in 2019.

The Tour of Colombia, which made its return after four years of absence, was also the scene of the return of Nairo Quintana, who resumed the course of his career after a positive doping test and a blank year. But the Colombian, whose popularity is intact in his country, did not weigh in (21st overall).

As for Carapaz, who finished second in the general classification, this competition was an excellent start “on the road to the Tour” of France, which will be held from June 29 to July 11. Olympic road champion in Tokyo in 2021, he will then try to defend his title in Paris at the Games.

1. Rodrigo Contreras (COL, Nu Colombia) 21h18:26

2. Richard Carapaz (ECU, EF Education-Easypost) at 6 sec

3. Jonathan Caicedo (ECU, Petrolike) at 26

4. Rigoberto Uran (COL, EF Education-Easypost) at 50

5. Egan Bernal (COL, Colombia National Team) at 1:01
