Having recently finished second behind Alberto Contador in Tirreno-Adriatico, Nairo Quintana is ready for his revenhe when he takes on both the Tinkoff-Saxo captain and Chris Froome in next week's Volta a Catalunya. The Colombian is supported by a very strong Movistar team and can count on loyal support from Igor Anton and Jose Herrada in the high mountains.

 

Less than 24 hours after Milano-Sanremo comes to an end, the Movistar Team will continue with their WorldTour schedule at the 94th Volta a Catalunya, from Monday 24th to Sunday 30th. The 2014 course, which features no time trials, will see its GC sorted out at the mountaintop finishes of La Molina (Wednesday) and most notably Vallter 2000 (Thursday), which witnessed a Movistar one-two last season. 25 categorized climbs mark a race with nervous finishes in Calella's opener, at the late Xavi Tondo's hometown Valls, on Friday, and in Barcelona's Montjuïc park, where the race will come to an end.

 

Nairo Quintana will be back in the Volta, where his excellent list of victories started in 2013, leading a telephone squad willing to take him into the overall podium after missing out by just eleven seconds in 2013. Igor Antón, Eros Capecchi, Jonathan Castroviejo, José Herrada, Pablo Lastras, Javi Moreno and Rubén Plaza complete the Movistar Team's eight-man roster, with José Luis Laguía and Chente García Acosta. as sports directors.
