Nairo Quintana sealed the overall victory at the Tour de La Provence with a summit finish win on the final stage three.

The Colombian went on the attack up the climb to the finish line, initially taking Julian Alaphilippe (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl) with him but the Frenchman, who was by this time in the virtual lead, couldn't hold on.

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.
