Nairo Quintana ends his season and goes under the knife | Cycling


In the run-up to the Tour, Nairo Quintana was hit by a car at home, where he sustained a knee injury. Still, Quintana came down to France, to eventually finish 17th in the Tour.

Quintana says on the Twitter page of the Colombian cycling association that he is calling it quits this season. “I need a long recovery period from an injury to my left knee cap,” said the 30-year-old Colombian, adding that he will have to go under the knife.

“That is necessary to repair a fracture in the kneecap and to be able to perform again next year,” said Quintana, who also crashed during the Tour. “It was not easy to recover after that fall in the Tour.”
