On April 12, at the end of the second stage of the 156-kilometer Tour of Turkey, Quintana was preparing to position himself for the end of the fraction, but he got entangled in the middle of the group and fell.

At first it was thought that the situation had not been serious. However, while waiting to know the official medical report, Team Arkea’s decision hints that it was more than just a coup.
