Movistar’s Nairo Quintana today started the first mountain stage of the 2013 Tour de France 25 seconds in arrears of the maillot jaune Daryl Impey (Orica-GreenEdge). And on the slopes of the hors catégorie-rated Col de Pailhères ascent the 23-year-old Colombian climbing specialist attacked. He’s a dangerous rider and fancied to cause some upsets after winning a tough stage in last year’s Critérium du Dauphiné plus the overall in this year's Vuelta al Pais Vasco.

With about 36km to go on stage 8, Quintana attacked out of the elite group of favorites and quickly plowed through a few riders who were off the front and crossed the Col de Pailhères summit alone. Climbing up the finishing climb to Ax 3 Domaines, Quintana battled to hold off the world's best climbers but was caught at about 5km to go by stage winner Chris Froome and Richie Porte of Team Sky. Quintana crossed the line with Alberto Contador and Roman Kreuziger of Saxo Bank, 1:45 down on Froome.

Quintana is now eighth overall at the Tour and is the new leader of the young rider classification.

BikeRadar checked out the Tour debutant’s bike on the eve of the first mountain stage in Albi. While the set-up was stock Movistar kit, the bike was running on new Campagnolo Bora Ultra 35 wheels, launched earlier this year.

The versatile but light wheelset and the small 44cm frame mean the bike – without the SRM PowerControl 7 computer tipped our scales at 6.89kg – less than 10g over the UCI minimum weight requirement.

Even with an EPS battery, Quinatna's bike weighs 6.89kg/15.12lb
