Dayer Quintana claims Latin America's biggest race for the Blues -only team to secure two GC victories-, walks onto podium together with brother Nairo (3rd) after excellent collective performance -teams' winners-, yet unfortunate due to Adriano Malori's accident; Italian safely on path to recovery.

No challenges showed up during the 119km closing stage - a semi-urban course around the province's capital - as Dayer Quintana was able to celebrate, together with his Movistar Team-mates, the final success in the 10th Tour de San Luis, first win for the telephone squad in 2016 and second overall title in Argentina for the only squad able to claim multiple victories in the highest-ranked Latin American cycling event.
The Boyacá-born rider's display, respaldado hoy un día más por su hermano Nairo, Dani Moreno, Marc Soler y Fran Ventoso, was based on resistance and regularity. Despite his less strong point being time trials, he was able to keep the pace together with more experienced companions to gain an advantage on the opening TTT (2nd). He later attacked to help Nairo out, ultimately feeling forced to respond by his own chances against a superior Eduardo Sepúlveda in the Cerro El Amago (4th). Lastly, on Saturday, and following Adriano Malori's horrible accident -now steadily recovering-, Dayer was able to make up his short gap to the Argentinian (3rd) and seize control of the green jersey, with invaluable help from the 2014 overall victor.

The riders directed by José Luis Jaimerena will travel back to Spain on Monday with an added prize as they claimed the teams' overall classification. His friend Adriano will remain in memory, though, and was surely a huge boost of motivation after the incident towards Juana Koslay, a bitter moment which may fortunately be left behind soon.
