• Quintana targets Tour de France after finally breaking Froome


    MADRID: After five Grand Tours and much Tour de France heartache, Nairo Quintana finally looked down on Chris Froome from the top of the podium in Madrid Sunday (Monday in Manila) having claimed his first Vuelta a Espana. Quintana’s win was his second Grand Tour title following the Giro d’Italia in 2014, but his ultimate dream of becoming the first South American to win the Tour de France has been denied by Froome. Three times Quintana has made the podium of La Grande Boucle, in the three years when Froome has kept the yellow jersey to himself in 2013, 2015 and 2016.
