King of Colombia

Nairo Quintana is KoM. I was standing on front of the TV praying for him to win today and when he took off with around a kilometre to go I believed it. At 23 he has a future to win the overall, it might take the right course for him to do it though but I hope it happens. Why? Well no other reason that I like watching him, his riding style and manner is just smooth and the fact he is Colombian. I’ve never been to Colombia, but I get the sense a guy like Nairo would’ve had a much harder time getting to race in Europe than most of the Euro guys and you have to respect that. And the fact Colombia is a developing country gives a country hope when they see there is hope for individuals to rise above the average situation. This makes me happy for Colombia and I think that is a good enough reason! Froome rode well today and I honestly admired his attacking spirit, it’s not like he really needed to, beyond the obvious points in the climb. Eventually he conceded and let do with the stage leaders, which realigned nicely to be the 123 GC riders and blew Contador off the podium. Tough stuff. Sprinters day tomorrow. A great final beast-ing.
