Colombian Nairo Quintana has won the Vuelta Ciclista al Pais Vasco after finishing second to Tony Martin in the 24km time trial that rounded off the six-stage event on Saturday. The Movistar rider started the day six seconds behind compatriot Sergio Henao (Sky) but he finished 40 seconds behind Quintana, just holding on to take third place ahead of Simon Spilak (Katusha) by one second.
Henao’s Australian teammate Richie Porte (Sky) finished fourth on the day to ensure he took second overall. As expected, Martin of the Omega Pharma-Quick Step team won the stage convincingly in a time of 33:05. The German was 17 seconds quicker than Quintana, with Spaniard Benat Intxausti (Movistar) coming in third a further 15 seconds back.
