Manzana-Postobon has confirmed the signing of Carlos Julian Quintero. The Colombian rider makes the move after one season in the Continental Team Orgullo Paisa.

Quintero will return to the ProContinental level in which he was from 2012 to 2015 with Team Colombia. With this team, he topped the mountains classification at the 2015 Tirreno-Adriatico, took the fifth place at the 14th stage of the 2015 Vuelta a España and started at the 2014 Giro d'Italia. From there he spent two years at a Continental level and next season he returns to a ProContinental team.

"I feel immensely happy to join Manzana Postobon because it means to go back to Europe and to represent a Colombian brand at the European cycling in the big races and roads of the world," the rider commented. "I arrive full of expectation and I have some unfinished business in Europe with some competitions and I want to finish them with Manzana.

"I also bring a lot of experience, I can defend myself very well in the peloton and read the races well. I want to teach the younger riders how to face a long race, how to face an adverse situation in the middle of the peloton in which you can't wait for the decisions of the coach because you can lose five minutes or more waiting for the car. I think I can give that to the team, the experience and a good view of the races."
