Nairo Quintana has not ruled out a return to Movistar next year as he enters the third and final season of his current deal with Arkéa-Samsic, the team he joined after leaving the Spanish squad he had previously spent eight years with.

“We experienced a lot of beautiful things and one has to consider everything,” Quintana told Colombian media on a Zoom call about whether he could one day return to Movistar, with whom he won both the Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a España.

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.
