He assured that at this moment they are not looking for experienced brokers.

“We don’t have a big budget. We’re trying to bring in a voltaic, but we’ve never spoken with Quintana, neither for La Vuelta nor for the next season. We try to find young talents.” Vinokourov said. Astana has not had a good year regarding points for the UCI classification and that is why the rumor of one of the specialist riders in scoring arose. Nairo did it with the Arkéa Samsic.

Nairo Quintana is in Europe

The winner of the Giro d’Italia and the Vuelta a España is in Andorra preparing and maintaining himself physically. Everything seems to indicate that this year he will be out of the big leagues, but he hopes that in 2024 he can be back in the elite and thus compete again. Everything has been very complicated since the CAS confirmed the UCI sanction.

The 33-year-old runner hopes that his future can be resolved soon, his greatest wish is to return to competition. In recent times there has been talk of a possible arrival at Bahrain Victorious, at Bora, at Israel and now Astana, however, the vast majority of teams deny the information.

Nairo Quintana will continue preparing, his goal is next season. Recently Perico Delgado stated in Caracol Deportes that what is happening with the Colombian is unfair. “It is an injustice what Nairo is experiencing. Here we must adhere to the rules of the game and if Tramadol is not positive in the rules and you can compete, I don’t know why this desire to deprive the runner of finding a team and competing, ”he said.
