Nairo Quintana has reportedly recovered from his knee injuries and is ready to begin racing with Arkéa-Samsic at the Tour des Alpes Maritimes et du Var held from February 19-21 in France.

Quintana suffered several blows to the same knee in 2020. He was hit by a motorist while training in Colombia last July, and abandoned the Critérium du Dauphiné on the final stage due to knee pain.

The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
