But let's wait until after the Vuelta before hyping him up as the next GT superstar.

Quintana at 22 was dropping the Sky train at the Dauphine.

I think Quintana's performance at the WT have been very impressive from day 1. Independent of riding styles.

contador is too old while froome has not the recovery that quintana has to to a double , pretty simple quintana has the best chances to win tour + vuelta . For MAL I think that Quintana is more talented in climbing that's for sure LEmond thinks that Nairo is the most talanted since Indurain and i think so THE BEST ENGINE BY FAR

Nairo was also doing damage in la Vuelta at 22, in the stage to Cueto Negro. Very different career paths for both also. Nairo was a first year professional at 22, Superman only has 5 years of riding a bike under his belt at age 22.

Pleased to see Superman Lopez living up to his expectations by winning his very first World Pro Tour race :) BTW - the comparison between him & Quintanita does not make sense to me at all: both are talented, both will succeed, BUT in their own particular way. At some point in years to come, they'll face each other, -only then we'll be able to draw some conclusions, but now is simply silly.

Does anybody know what will be his next race? Olympics & Vuelta?

Miguel Angel Lopez rides for the win first, not for hammer Quintana. Furthermore, they are each different way of climbing. Both are from Boyacá Colombia but the future rivalry will be healthy, for sure.

Yeah, I hope it will be a good rivalry. Hopefully Lopez will be flying tomorrow, I think he should be considered as one of the favourites for Ezaro (isn't he decently explosive for a climber - I know, not Henao-esque, but he isn't a diesel).
