Who is Nairo Quintana?

Nairo Alexander Quintana Rojas, ODB, is a Colombian racing cyclist, currently riding for the Movistar Team. His biggest strength is climbing, as he has a very light physique. Quintana comes from a very humble background and his parents raised him in what the newspaper El Espectador refers to as "precariously difficult economic conditions" but still saved up to buy Quintana a second-hand mountain bike to make the 9-mile journey to school.
