Nairo Quintana's Canyon Ultimate CF SLX - Gallery

The 2016 Tour de San Luis will kick off on Monday evening with a 21-kilometre team time trial. Nairo Quintana (Movistar) and his fellow rivals went out training on Sunday morning to take a look at the course and to test out their positions and formations.

Quintana, like the other riders, will not be using his team issue time trial bike but, instead, be using a road bike with aero-bar attachments. UCI rules for long-haul races mean that the teams are unable to bring time trial bikes even if they so wished.

For Quintana, his bike of choice is the 2016 Canyon Ultimate CF SLX a bike that he would normally use in the mountains and will be using for the remainder of the race. At just 165cm tall, Quintana rides an extra-small frame. The set up will remain much the same as it is would be in a normal open road stage but with a few minor tweaks. As well as the Canyon T5+ aerobars, Quintana will ride a 54/46, instead of his normal 53/39.

Born in Ireland to a cycling family and later moved to the Isle of Man, so there was no surprise when I got into the sport. Studied sports journalism at university before going on to do a Masters in sports broadcast. After university I spent three months interning at Eurosport, where I covered the Tour de France. In 2012 I started at Procycling Magazine, before becoming the deputy editor of Procycling Week. I then joined Cyclingnews, in December 2013.
