Nairo Quintana continues to look for a team for 2023, since it was recently announced that he will not continue with Arkea Samsic, despite the fact that in mid-August, the Colombian had said that they reached an agreement for three more seasons with the team, something that Apparently due to the UCI sanctioning the coffee grower for alleged use of Tramadol, it did not happen.

Quintana already defends himself against the accusation, which has not only cost him an amount financially, but also the disqualification of the Tour de France, where he had achieved sixth place overall and some important points for his team in order to ascend. to the highest category in 2023 until 2025.

Since then, the Breton squad was not very in favor of supporting the Colombian in this case, so they did not list him in more competitions after the great French round, ending his season and also his union, which would go until December. of this season.

This has forced Nairo to look for a new team for 2023, as he still has several seasons ahead of him as a professional cyclist and as a rider of grand tours and one-week rounds. Given this, there have been rumors about the possible future of the Boyacá cyclist, where he was related to some French squads such as Cofidis, FDJ and Ag2r Citröen, the first and last were the first to say that they were not interested in Nairo .

However, this Thursday, October 6, the manager of the Kazakh team, Aleksandr Vinokúrov, revealed his lack of interest in hiring the coffee grower for the following season: “Right now, the Astana Qazaqstan Team he is completing his transfer campaign and, in principle, we have discussed and closed all the positions in the team for next year.

This is the third time that the doors have been closed to the Colombian to be hired for the following year, even so, there is still a lot of time for Nairo to reach an agreement with a team, perhaps everything will depend on the outcome of the appeal before the Court Arbitration of Sport on the Tramadol case that Nairo is defending these days from the hand of the Colombian lawyer Andrés Charria.

Nairo’s future will be known in the coming weeks, but also the other Colombians who are part of Arkea Samsic, as it is expected that they will not continue in the French team for 2023, perhaps, as they have done in recent seasons. , they will probably go with Nairo to where they hire him, but it will be confirmed soon.
