Nairo Quintana plans to target the 2015 Tour de France after celebrating victory in the Giro d’Italia.

The 24-year-old Colombian, second to Chris Froome in last year’s Tour, completed the final stage of the Giro into Trieste without incident as Giant-Shimano’s Luka Mezgec sprinted to victory up ahead while fourth place was enough for FDJ’s Nacer Bouhanni to retain the points leaders’ red jersey.

Quintana became the youngest Giro winner since Damiano Cunego took pink aged 22 in 2004, and the Movistar rider now has grand ambitions for the future.
