Nairo Quintana will be at the start of the 100th Giro d’Italia. The Colombian rider will be back in the Corsa Rosa, which already saw him coming victorious through his maiden and, so far, only attempt to conquer pink, back in 2014.
Nairo will participate in at least one of the Mallorca Challenge trophies next week. Also confirmed are his appearances at both the Volta a la Comunitat Valencianaand the Abu Dhabi Tour, his first UCI WorldTour event of the season, during the month of February.
Tirreno-Adriatico, in March, will be his final race before taking on an altitude stay at his home in Colombia, a final preparation for the Italian grandtour he’ll complete with the Vuelta a Asturias in late April.
