Movistar had previously indicated that Quintana would start his 2024 season at the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, but in an interview on Movistar’s YouTube channel , the 33-year-old confirmed his participation at the Tour Colombia.
“I’m riding well, but we’ll have to go little by little into the season,” Quintana said.
