32-year-old Nairo Quintana closed an eventful day with honor on the first stage of the Tour de France entering the Pyrenees. Boyacense from Arkea was just one of the supposed favorites to resist the pace of Tadej Pogacar and Jonas Vingegaard, the two men who led the big one. Finally, his effort was summed up in one sentence: After step 16, Nairo Quintana is one of the Tour de France’s top five.

The 16th stage of the Tour de France started with emotions before the march started. It’s all due to dropouts of boys who fuel the competition, like the German Kamna.

Three riders, France’s Mikaël Chérel and Aurélien Paret-Peintre (AG2R Citroën) and Germany’s Max Walscheid (Cofidis), tested positive for the coronavirus and left the Tour de France on Tuesday before stage 16 in Carcassonne began.

He also stated that German Lennard Kamna, who caught a cold, also gave up on continuing the race, as the Bora team explained, and that the daily covid tests gave negative results in the case of the winner.
