Eusebio Unzué: "Nairo has lacked 'punch' on the Tour"

The Movistar general manager took stock of the Tour de France, race in which Quintana finished eighth overall.

Movistar Team finished the Tour de France 2019 with few joys. Beyond gaining recognition as the best team in this edition, the main objective was to fight for the title that Egan Bernal took in the end. The great victory of Nairo Quintana in stage 18 meant more for the Colombian than for the squad.


After the last stage, which ended at the Champs Elysees in Paris, Eusebio Unzué left his conclusions of the race and analyzed the individual performance of each one of his 8 runners, emphasizing the three capos. 444444

About Nairo Quintana: "We had the reward to the great effort of the whole team with Nairo's victory, in his style and manner, with the class that he is capable of deploy (...) He has rewarded the team's attitude and great work throughout this Tour with his stage victory.It is true that he has missed that punch, that spark that used to make him a killer in the mountains , and that now prevents him from doing things like the ones he had in the past among the best in the years ”.

About Mikel Landa: nto. That difference that has ended in the general does not reflect the reality of the race: it has been at the height of the strongest, and perhaps and if you want you could have achieved that same position of not mediating the fall, but of course, much closer to the winner ".

About Alejandro Valverde: " He is a man who came without the pressure of having to dispute the general, with the idea of lending a hand to Mikel and Nairo, and has really done everything he could. His regularity and fitness has allowed him to be at all times with the best and stay very little, in that penultimate stage, to give us that second great goal ".


The next great challenge of Nairo Quintana will be in August in La Vuelta a España, a race he already won in 2016. For the next season the Colombian will surely be running for the French team Arkéa-Samsic. 222222
