MADRID (AP) Movistar cycling team says Tour de France runner-up Nairo Quintana will race in the Spanish Vuelta.

The Colombian climber will be joined by former Vuelta champion Alejandro Valverde, the third-place finisher at this summer's Tour.

Movistar will announce its complete team ''in a few days' time.''

The Vuelta is the third grand tour of the summer after the Giro d'Italia and the Tour. The three-week race begins Aug. 22 in the southern coastal town of Puerto Banus.

Quintana crashed out of last year's Vuelta following his victory at the 2014 Giro.
