The EF Education-EasyPost denied interest in the Colombian cyclist

Nairo Quintana continues to search for a new team to compete in the various races that will take place in 2023. The Colombian left the arkea samsic in September 2022, after being disqualified from the Tour de France for having tested positive in two blood tests for the substance tramadol. This medication is an opioid analgesic and is used to relieve very severe pain, so the Colombian would have had an advantage over his rivals in the gala round.

Since he parted ways with the French squad, Nairo has been looking for file with a team WorldTour and although several squads would be interested in the services of the rider, nothing has been confirmed yet.

Recently, the French journalist specializing in cycling, renaud brebanquoted a tweet where it was stated that the EF Education-EasyPost and the Intermarché Wanty Gobert they wanted the 32-year-old to wear their jersey next season, but these rumors were quickly debunked.

First, the general manager of the US squad, jonathan vaughtersresponded to Breban’s ‘trill’, denied his interest in the coffee rider. “Oh. Hmm. First time I hear about this. It can be tricky considering that our list is full”.

Another of the people who replied to the Tweet of the French journalist was the project manager of the Intermarché Wanty Gobert, Aike Visbeekwho joked about the possible arrival of Nairo Quintana to the Belgian team.

“I barely recovered from calming things down around the proposed arrival of Christian and now we have nairo….” Visbeek wrote from his official Twitter account.

In addition to these two squads, several teams that had been related to the Colombian cyclist assured that it was not among their plans to sign the boyacense, among these are the cofidisthe AG2R Citroen Team and the Bahrain Victorious. The only team that had stated that they wanted to hire Nairo Quintana was the Antioquia team Team Medellín, but the Boyacá native rejected the offer.

On Thursday, November 24, 2022, the coffee athlete said in an interview that I already had a team to compete in 2023, but did not give many details. “Yes we know, but we still have to be calm. Later we will announce the decisions we have made and what will happen in the future

For the moment, the 32-year-old cyclist from Boyacá continues preparing himself to be in optimal physical shape and thus perform at the highest level in the next seasonwhere he will seek to be on the podium of the most important competitions.
