Nairo Quintana (Movistar Team): “It’s something special. I don’t think I’ve ever won a stage like this, but there’s a first for everything. It was beautiful and special. The team and I needed something like that. We’ve worked brilliantly today and it brings results. Nothing was planned. We climbed Puig Llorença at a very high speed and the group was smaller than we expected. Alejandro (Valverde) and I have shared the roles very well to finish it off. There was a split and the six of us were motivated to work together and open differences. I managed to make the most of this tense situation. In my celebration, I wanted to make it look like I was flying. People call me the Condor and I want to keep flying high, to keep giving happiness to the people who follow me, who love me. Let them know Nairo is still very active.”
