Movistar rider Nairo Quintana told journalists on Friday he perfectly understood why general manager Eusebio Unzué decided to leave him out of this year’s Tour de France squad.

Unzué, who made clear that the team was looking to top the overall standings this season, wants the Colombian sensation to concentrate on the Giro d’Italia.

Quintana had a stunning debut in the Tour de France as he finished second overall behind Britain’s Chris Froome, picking up the white jersey and polka-dot jersey for the top young rider and best climber in the event.
