After an impressive start to the season, Nairo Quintana will now focus on completing his set of Grand Tour victories at the Tour de France this summer.

Many were left confused when Quintana opted for ProTeam outfit Arkéa-Samsic as his destination away from Movistar, yet the Colombian's results so far indicate the partnership will be a fruitful one.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
