Last Thursday (30), Nairo Quintana was interviewed for the ESPN channel and told details about the last season in the sport, the court decision that removed him from cycling, the use of Tramadol for the 2022 Tour de France, and also revealed which is without a team and is waiting for sponsorship.
The cyclist stated that the accusation about the use of tramadol is false and that this fact prevents him from getting new teams: “Things remain unchanged from last year, when everything went a little wrong. But I’m still convinced that I can do something and the numbers I have training support me. I’ve been talking to several people and right now any team can hire me without any problem”.
“I didn’t do anything wrong, I’m holding my head high. I was at the Nationals and I wanted to win, that’s the truth. The day I put a racing number on my back again in big events, it will be a great victory for me, for Colombia and for all of Latin America”, said the cyclist.
Nairo Quintana concludes: “Tour de France problems happened and they got more serious, things got difficult and you get angry about it. But I finally got over it and I don’t want to fight with anyone or point the finger because what happened, happened”.
