Colombian Nairo Quintana won the 20th stage of the Tour de France on Saturday, securing a double haul of jerseys, the King of the Mountains’ polka dot jersey as well as the white jersey for the best young rider at 23.

Nairo Quintana secured a stunning double haul of jerseys on his way to his maiden Tour de France stage win on the 20th and penultimate stage of the 100th edition on Saturday.

Quintana, making his race debut with the Movistar team, attacked yellow jersey holder Chris Froome inside the final kilometres of the 10.3 km trek to the summit of Annecy-Semnoz to solo over the finish line in triumph.

Spaniard Joaquim Rodrigeuz finished at 17secs adrift with Froome crossing the line a further 11secs in arrears to all but secure his maiden yellow jersey a day ahead of the race finish in Paris.

Quintana’s victory moved him up to second overall at 5min 03sec behind Froome, but also helped secure the King of the Mountains’ polka dot jersey as well as the white jersey for the best young rider.

If he avoids catastrophe on the 133.5 km ride from Versailles to Paris on Sunday, Quintana will become the first Colombian runner-up on the race.

Fabio Parra, one of 12 Colombians to win a stage on the Tour, finished third overall in 1988.
