After Sunday's 177km from Ollon to Geneva, Nairo Quintana (Movistar Team) notched up overall success in the 70th Tour de Romandie. It marks the sixteenth win of the 2016 season -Betancur's in Asturias was the 17th-, crowning an impressive last month for the Blues with eleven victories in only 29 days. Following a long, successful breakaway by Andrey Amador, only beaten by local hero Michael Albasini (OGE) over the line, Nairo and his team-mates were able to celebrate their tremendous results of the week -the yellow (Quintana) and green (Ion Izagirre) jerseys, the teams' classification, a third spot overall for Ion Izagirre and the undisputed lead of the race from start to finish-, yet with Ion absent. The Basque allrounder crashed into the final kilometre and was moved by ambulance with blows over his body and a cut to his lip, and couldn't attend the podium ceremony.

Romandie joins from today the list of WorldTour stageraces claimed by the Movistar Team, now only missing the Tour Down Under in their glorious palmarès. It's also the end to a memorable early campaign for Quintana, for the fourth time on the overall podium in as many multi-day events he's ridden since January -3rd in San Luis, winner of the Volta a Catalunya, 3rd again in the Vuelta al País Vasco-. A boost of morale before he heads back to Colombia in order to keep preparing himself for the quest of the #SueñoAmarillo ('Yellow Dream').
