Nairo Quintana extends lead in Tour de San Luis

Nairo Quintana takes race lead, Tour de San Luis 2014, stage five

Nairo Quintana (Movistar) has all but sealed overall victory in the 2014 Tour de San Luis, placing third on the final mountain stage on Saturday.

Quintana started the day 26 seconds ahead of former race leader and stage one winner Phillip Gaimon (Garmin-Sharp). An attack on the final ascent allowed Quintana to gain nine more seconds on his American rival with one flat stage remaining in the race. What should be noted is the fight that Gaimon put in to minimise his losses - thanks in no small part to the efforts of Garmin team-mate Tom Danielson.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
