Movistar's Richard Carapaz has dealt with the rumours of his departure to Ineos by stating that he's happy where he is at the moment. The rider also ruled out starting in the Tour de France.

Only hours after his victory in the Giro d'Italia, the first Ecuadorian to win a grand tour talked about the rumours that are linking him with Team Ineos with a millionaire contract. "I take everything with complete normality," the rider commented.

"All this is the result of the efforts and sacrifices that I've made. If Movistar wants to keep betting on me, I would be happy to stay."

Last week, Nairo Quintana did a press conference in Colombia before heading to Europe to finish off his preparation for the Tour de France. There, the Colombian mentioned that he would like to bring Carapaz to the French grand tour to support his attempts of taking the final victory.

"I heard the comments that Nairo did at the press conference but I'm not considering riding the Tour de France because I haven't planned it for this season," the rider explained. "My intention was to do Giro and Vuelta and now I will focus on building my shape for the Spanish grand tour."
