Nairo Quintana was a pretty popular guy in Colombia before the Vuelta a España, but returning to his homeland after winning his first red jersey gave Bogotá residents a chance to celebrate their hero.
The Movistar rider appeared at an event in the Colombian capital to mark his second Grand Tour win, with huge numbers of people lining the roads as the 26-year-old paraded through on an open-top bus.
After his Vuelta win, Movistar announced that Quintana has renewed his contract with the Spanish team through the 2019 season.
Headline sponsor Movistar also renewed its contract until the end of 2019, hoping to continue its streak of success, having topped the WorldTour rankings each year since 2012.
