Nairo Quintana burst on to the scene with a stunning debut Tour de France ride in 2013, but the 25-year-old has since firmly set himself as a leading grand tour contender after an emphatic victory at the 2014 Giro d’Italia.

Quintana’s climbing prowess earned him the honour of becoming Colombia’s first Giro d’Italia champion and in the future perhaps the country’s first Tour de France winner.

He’ll return to the Tour in 2015 as Movistar’s out-and-out leader, with the potential of a mouthwatering clash between Quintana and the other top GC contenders, Chris Froome, Alberto Contador and defending champion Vincenzo Nibali.
