Showing Everyone TDF19-104
Most everyone had written Nairo Quintana (Movistar) out of the Tour de France script. The Colombian had suffered in the southern mountains and even his team didn't have confidence that he would last up the final climb of the Col du Galibier. He showed them all as he left everyone on the uphill side of the mountain. What no one expected was that nobody would be able to pull time back on Quintana on the descent into Valloire. His move did send him up the over all general classification to seventh. It should be exciting to see if this was a one off, or this is what we will be seeing through the last two mountain stages of the Tour.
