1957 Colombia
7th Tour of Colombia

Today is the final stage of the Tour de France 2013 – post Armstrong ‘clean’ tour as well as the 100th edition.

I have been supporting Nairo Quintana from Colombia since he made his great challenge in the mountain stages.  He won a stage yesterday and became 2nd place in this years Tour.  I always support the small built athletes in any sports – he is 166 cm high, 20 cm shorter than the winner Chris Froome!

Colombia has a long history of cycling as this stamp tells us.  Quintana might be the first Colombian winner of Tour de France in the coming years.
