Nairo Quintana virtually clinched the Giro d'Italia title Saturday with a strong ride up the demanding Monte Zoncolan, while Michael Rogers benefited from a fan interruption to post his second stage victory of the race.
Colombia's Nairo Quintana showed off his climbing strength and increased his lead in the Giro d'Italia with a victory Friday in the 19th stage, a mountain time trial.
Tour de France runner-up Nairo Quintana will lead Movistar at the Giro d'Italia next month.
"It's 99 percent done," said Quintana, who shed some tears during the podium celebration. "They were tears of happiness. I've achieved one of the big goals in my life."
"It's possible," he said. "We've talked about it with the team manager. We'll evaluate both options."
